Hi list....first posting.....

I just installed afterstep for the first time.  I wanted something that
was as hackable and configurable as Fvwm2 and as nice on the eyes as
WindowMaker (I also happen to like the next look).  It looks quite nice
so far.  I think I might be a convert!

Fvwm2 has two REALLY SLICK modules called FvwmConsole and FvwmCommand.
FvwmConsole allows users to enter any valid Fvwm2 command in a console
window.  This would allow commands like setting key bindings, autoraise
behavior, window switching behavior, etc to be modified while the window
manager is up and running without restarting the window manager
session.  FvwmCommand is a module which allows commands to be executed
from a shell command line.  This allows window manager settings to be
manipulated via the shell in a script.  It's very nice to be able to
script various window manager stuff.  Does anyone know of any modules
for afterstep that accomplish these tasks?  If so, I would DEFINITELY be
an afterstep convert!
