Apart from the fact, that fvwm == fvwm2 (which we briefly discussed on
IRC), I'd agree here, too.

Well. The only reason, I'd keep one of these is to have a tiling window
manager on board. And I'd definitely go for `awesome' here. The other
two should go.

As Christian said, `grml-x' and `x-window-manager' should default to the
same window manager. And I'd agree that it should be `wm-ng' (in the
light of Mika refusing to merge `fluxbox' and `wm-ng' into one :)).
