Package: ratpoison
Version: 1.4.3-1
Severity: wishlist


I just moved to ratpoison from stumpwm as the latter crashes too much.  Just
when I was banging my head against the wall wondering how I was going to get a
good default config going, I found Daniel Webb's example config at (look for the .tar.gz).

Perhaps this could be included in the examples directory and referred to in
README.Debian, to give us ratpoison newbies a substantial advantage?  It shows
what can be done in a way that one can't imagine on first skim of the
ratpoison docs.
