QUERY: default wm fvwm replaced by twm?

Just wondering about Fedora Core 3, 4. I assume they've taken out fvwm now and replaced it with twm? Correct? I remember Red Hat had fvwm as the basic window manager, if no other window manager was installed, or if an account didn't have the right x config load up scripts.

Now we have twm. Wow. I remember using this back in 1998 in University days.

1. How can we load up twm in the session setup? I found the only way to get to twm is if one deletes his own .x related config files.

2. Why twm and not fvwm? fvwm is far much better than twm. Especially the new fvwm version. (I know KDE and GNOME are far superior, but it's RH/FC backup window manager?)

It's not even listed in the graphical login splash page. That's what am wondering about. Though "switchdesk twm" recognises it.
