minimalistic != minimal

The disconnect here is that most people don't want a *truly* minimal  
WM.  They want one which stays out of the way as much as possible,  
while still providing what turns out to be fairly sophisticated  
services ("tiling is simple" --- so what happens when a program  
decides it wants to open a pop-up menu?).
