-and dwm:
+musca is a simple dynamic window manager for X
+with features nicked from ratpoison and dwm.
-* Musca operates as a tiling window manager by default. It uses manual
-tiling, which means the user determines how the screen is divided into
-non-overlapping frames, with no restrictions on layout. Application
-windows always fill their assigned frame, with the exception of transient
-windows and popup dialog boxes which float above their parent application
-at the appropriate size. Once visible, applications do not change frames
-unless so instructed.
-* Since not all applications suit tiling, a more traditional stacking
-window manager mode is also available, allowing windows to float at any
-screen location and overlap.
-* There are no built in status bars, panels, tabs or window decorations
-to take up screen real estate. If the user wants any of these things,
-there are plenty of external applications available to do the job. Window
-decoration is limited to a slender border, which is coloured to indicate
-keyboard focus.
-* Windows are placed in named groups which can be used in a similar
-fashion to virtual desktops. Groups can be added and removed on the fly,
-and each group has its own frame layout.
-* The excellent dmenu utility is used to execute commands and launch
-applications, and it can also act as a window and group switcher. Basic
-EWMH support allows use of common panels, pagers and wmctrl.
-* Windows and frames are navigated and focused on any mouse button
-click, including rolling the wheel, or alternatively driven entirely
-by the keyboard. Simple key combinations exist for window switching,
-group switching, frame control and screen switching.
-* Frames can be dedicated to a single application window, preventing new
-windows usurping said frame. One frame per group can also be flagged as
-a catch-all so that all new application windows open there. The frame
-border colour changes to reflect these modes.
-* Musca has multi-screen support out of the box, and will automatically
-create groups for every available screen.
-Musca requires the following additional software (available here at
