ssltunnel.pl is an SSL tunnelling script that supports reproxying to build a chain of proxies, thus allowing access even if the local proxy inserts characters that would normally mess up SSH and other binary TCP/IP protocols. It supports basic proxy authentication and can even work without SSH.
Fvwm is the real deal :)
Those of you using fvwm2 derivatives such as afterstep should take another look at the genuine article. All the goodies you expect are available including wharf etc, and the build process is now the standard ./configure.
For some good configs look at fvwm2gnome (http://fvwm2gnome.fluid.cx/)
I liked it.
