That's far away in the future I'm afraid.
It seems that the dock apps I'm interested in don't even have 
a ./configure :-( (wmMatrix, wmppp, wmCalClock)
wmmwmload should be possible.

Mostly I'm interested in a substitute for kppp. A pppd call ...
works but I would like to have some window who reminds that I'm online and
shows me the traffic.
