yeah I was messing with names and came up with nothing - though the
backend utility junk I'm throwing in a namespace called "phrik" -
phrik and phrak... I found it funny 8(

maybe I'll just call it "phrak"... *shrug*, name is unimportant at this stage 8)

Yeah, I just don't think python is really up to the task of running a
WM - it has the nice little habit of dying and dying hard "whoops, I
fucked up - here's you stack trace"... I don't think I'd trust it...
