Hi Dan,

you are right that most of the specification covers the interaction
between a window manager and its environment. And most of this is
currently of no relevance for GNUstep, as you pointed out. But there are
some messages and attributes that should be set by client applications
and these are the ones we should implement. I am thinking of
Also there is the _NET_WM_PING protocol we should implement.
