I have been corrected in private mail that it was a wrong complain.

To be fair to icewm, icewm _has_ a hook for possible several "user-owned"
setups, since 2002. ($ICEWM_PRIVCFG)

It has though another and similar limitation, the impossibility to offer
several different pre-customized setups. That's why I remembered it as being
"not right", but that was NOT relevant in the context. Sorry.

Icewm is OK for having on a global home directory, and what you might
think, I am running it myself, on a Coda homedir, for years :)
