Who needs a window manager when you can use emacs and bash scripts to do anything?
Has anybody written ICCCM mode for emacs?
ICCCM is but one piece of the multitude of half-baked and extremely-fragmented protocols that make up the modern X11 environment, by the way.
"In summary, ICCCM is a technological disaster: a toxic waste dump of broken protocols, backward compatibility nightmares, complex nonsolutions to obsolete nonproblems, a twisted mass of scabs and scar tissue intended to cover up the moral and intellectual depravity of the industry's standard naked emperor." - Don Hopkins, The X-Windows Disaster 
"Using these toolkits is like trying to make a bookshelf out of mashed potatoes." - Jamie Zawinski
I do wonder how much that has come out of DE related devs seemingly having a phobia relating maintenance.
Any time some project seems to run out of new features to add, they scrap it and rewrite it from scratch.
Besides awesome idea and it seems to be working perfectly!
