Why bother adding all of this to openbox when E17 is just as light and has all of this built in? I'm not hating on open box at all because it's nice...I'm just wondering the reasoning behind complicating it with things other DEs already provide for you?
On a side note...first sign of that 2012 is the end of the world...a rumor (possible confirmed by now) floated around that E17 was nearing a "stable/official" release!
Next sign is Valve actually releasing and promoting Steam, L4d2, CS:GO, TF2, and HL3 on Linux.
Third sign...maybe RMS or Linus can provide that.
