What about xfce-session? It's small, lightweight, and does everything necessary. I actually find myself running xfce4-panel, xfwm4, rox -S.

No problem. Please send emails to the mailing list, though, so we can
all see them!

It should work. ROX-Session is Python, so it shouldn't care what
architecture it's on. There are no x86_64 binaries at present, but you
can always compile from source by right-clicking where it says
"(choose)" in the Version columns.

There are various possibilities for making binaries:

- Use the SUSE build service / Ubuntu PPA / etc. That will build RPMs
or Debs, but the binary inside should work anywhere.

- Set up a cross-compiler (so I can build x86_64 binaries on my i386
machine). Anyone have experience setting this up?

- Get someone with an x86_64 machine to publish the binaries they
build (click on "Publish" after the build is done).

- Run gcc in an x86_64 emulator.

I'm not totally sold on gnome-session, but it gets the job done.
Writing custom software is easy, but then you have to support it for
years, which takes time away from other things (like developing
ROX-Filer). What specific problems are there?
