Is it possible to have multiple slits in Blackbox?

Im trying to auto launch bbpager and gkrellm in different positions when starting x without using bbappconf or bblaunch. The two programs start up in one giant slit which looks rediculous. I would like to see bbpager load up at the top left horizontally and gkrellm top right vertically. /.blacboxrc only has 1 config set. Is it possible to add another? If so, what would the format look like? This is what it looks like right now:

session.screen0.slit.autoHide: False
session.screen0.slit.direction: Vertical
session.screen0.slit.maximizerOver: False
session.screen0.slit.onTop: True
session.screen0.slit.placement: TopRight

here's my .xinitrc
bbpager -w sleep 2 &
gkrellm -w sleep 2 &
exec /usr/local/bin/blackox

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well I know GKrellm can be set to remember its position, so why not start it without the -w (withdrawn/go-into-the-slit) option, check the remember position option is checked, and then move it to where ever you want.
Then you can leave bbpager in the slit, top left. You cant have more than one slit. Maybe request it as a feature to be added to Black/Flux box, or Wiamea or another BB fork.
