I'm using the older fluxbox and also know of a few others who are 
also dragging their feet.  I've actually had my attention elsewhere
and wasn't following the fluxbox-devel but I'll give it a whirl on a
test box in the next few days.  I doubt I'd request that the old
version remain in the tree in any event since I'd keep it along with a
few other local ports if I really wanted to stick with the old version.

Thanks for the notice though so I can start paying attention :-)
