I have had  no problem putting a pager in the wharf in 1.4.0. In 1.5prex,
I believe you can even put the complete pager into the wharf. Think maybe
even earlier. ModuleFullSwallow? Anyway, in 1.4.0, you just have to use
SwallowModule. No, I don't see any use for all those desktops. Not for me
anyway. I think I have pager in one of my wharves right now, but I can't
remember, I'm not running X right now.
BTW, yes all that matters is which distribution you're used to. That's
kind of what I was trying to say.

Of course... 5 years from now everyone will be running free GNU on their
200 MIPS, 64M SPARCstation-5.
