That was my plan.
Sorry for not popping in earlier, I have just subscribed to this list
after receiving Bernie's message.
Basically it should not be to hard to get Openbox working:
* Window decoration can be turned of. I guess this is what we want
for most windows.
* Supports window matching rules:
default windows -> fullscreen + no decoration
dialogs -> centered, on top, ...
* I already have the OLPC specific keyboard shortcuts from the
work I did with LXDE
* It can be started with different config files
I'm going to work on this, help and comments welcome.
