Actual usage report. Mcwm is *really* close to what im looking in a window manager, with some extras like its usage of XCB protocol.
Here's what i miss from ratpoison:
1) No rudeness setting
How ratpoison defines rudeness:
Show or set what kind of windows are allowed to jostle into the foreground.
rudeness is a bitwise or of the following values:
1 Transient windows may raise.
2 Normal windows may raise.
4 New transient windows end up in the foreground.
8 New normal windows end up in the foreground.
Default is all allowed i.e. 15.
I dont think any window manager has more flexible handling of this. It's the number one reason of sticking to ratpoison for me.
2) In ratpoison pressing the escape key, or modifier key (Mod4) as the mcwm author calls it, means the window manager is waiting for input. Again a feature not present in any other window manager.
3) No bind command. In ratpoison's config i can
bind h exec xset dpms force off
restart the wm and voila, C-t h blanks the screen
4) No internal command line.
5) No time printing (C-t a in ratpoison)
6) Some small stuff like banish, no definekey command, no keybind to quit the window manager which are not that important.
