I understand that, but I didn't think the distinction was that important
for the purpose of this conversation.  KDE and GNOME *provide* their own
window managers (well, KDE does, GNOME requires a separate window
manager like Sawfish or E) in addition to some other services.

One might consider KDE and GNOME to be a WindowManger++.  ;-)
