Hrrm, odd.  Try it when the wm is running and see what happens.

There's a 1 pixel border by default--if you put in my commands as I
typed it, I think that made it borderless.

When you start it, in .xinitrc you can specify border width with a -bw
<pixel> option.  There's a maximize toggle.  Resize is a mouse button

Smaller than flux, certainly.  

It was ok, but didn't move me that much.  As for the fbsetbg, that is

that can do the background.

Mayor Wilkins: She's pretty, Angel. A little skinny. Still
don't understand why it couldn't work out with you and my Faith. I
guess you kinda just have strange tastes in women.
Angel: Yeah, well, what can I say? I like 'em sane.
