Is Fluxbox available for pdaX ?

It seems pdaX runs blackbox so fluxbox could be a drop in replacement.

For those who don't know what fluxbox is :


Personally I use the develeopment version of fluxbox so I don't have extra tabs obscuring part of the screen.

Screenshot of the stable branch, note the extra tabbed title :


Screenshots of the dev branch, note that the extra tabs are now integrated :


So if someone would make a dev branch version that should be preferable.

Now what all the fuss is about, or if you don't want to read the fluxbox site...
The biggest thing for me personally is that you get tabs like in mozilla etc, so for example you can drag an xterm and drop it on you're openoffice app and it will take the size openoffice and now you can switch between them by clicking the name in the titlebar or if you use sloppy focus etc on mouseover, difficult to explain but I would guess verry usefull on a limited screen device.

From the site : fluxbox = blackbox +

* Configurable window tabs.
* Iconbar (for minimized/iconified windows)
* Wheel scroll changes workspace
* Configurable titlebar (placement of buttons, new buttons etc)
* KDE support
* New native integrated keygrabber (supports emacs like keychains)
* Maximize over slit option
* Partial GNOME support
* Extended Window Manager Hints support
* Slit dockap ordering
* Other minor features
