1. If you will read the whole thread you will see that its just gone off
track, and you pushed in this direction in the first place. Push
someone in the corner and then attack them for being pushed in the
2. I did answer about gnome/kde that personally I prefer gnome. I
don't like kde's settings, look, and I get the feeling that they are
trying to bring M$ monopoly to the linux desktop (maybe just because
they are trying to make a kde version of everything). In any case I
don't like the kde/gnome way of a bunch of background servers. I can
see the idea where you get the changes implemented immediately, but I
fill they overdid the whole thing, and that the interface is too heavy
compared to what it could have been and still provide a better user
3. I still prefer other window managers (fvwm personally) and as the OP
was wondering were to go I felt it was still the place to mention them
(people looking at gnome/kde sometimes bypass other window mangers for
the wrong reasons).

In that case I will let you know its impossible from gnome 2. Menus are
hard coded (unless the fixed the problem in the mean time).
