Yes, but I suspect that the question was partly whether AS can work with
CDE.  The short answer is, "Not really."  AS is not CDE aware.  Some
people have reported that some of the stuff that CDE does on the root
window, and some bits of CDE, will work with AS, but that was quite a
while ago (I believe it applied to v.1.0).  If anyone really knows the
answer, some clear direction would be very much welcome!
