I think it's better to keep Wmconfig Entries in the Wmconfig Package. 
Users that don't want to use Wmconfig have no use for these menu entries. 
I think Flwm is the only Window Manager with an converter. The 
"mainstream" desktops like KDE or Gnome will ignore Wmconfig entries.

Noticed. I have included sample configuration files from the Ports and I 
will change the menu entries.
