I understand it's possibly to change Gnome's WM from metacity to some
other WM. Some folks on the Gentoo lists talk about doing it once in
awhile. I've never done it but maybe there's someone here who has a
background in that sort of thing and wants to try?

I do use Gnome but haven't tried verifying this report as of yet.
Given a bit of direction I could try changing the WM.
