While I appreciate your wishes, I don't think this line of argument is very
constructive. Everyone has favorite features, and it's not helpful to say
"this is totally broken!" (or "unusable") just because it doesn't match
_your_ checklist. 

Clearly metacity meets some people's checklists (Havoc's, at least!), and
I'm sure you're well aware of it. Rather than picking the inflammatory
subject and introductory paragraphs, it's more likely to be productive to
phrase this differently -- "Where can I find a FC3 window manager that meets
my needs?

Window Maker should fit the bill pretty well, although the version in Fedora
Extras last I looked (before the new "Pre-Extras" thing) wasn't up to date
and wasn't quite modern-gnome-aware.
