Well, I figured it was more the "Fvwm way" to set it as a module config.
And more flexible.
One could still set environment variables, one would just use them as
the settings for both commands.

Not bored, still using it, but I miss my eye-candy. So I'm working on
a tiling module for Fvwm (that's the module above), because I figured it
would be easier to add tiling to Fvwm, than to add eye-candy to XMonad.
If I manage to get my module working to the degree I want, I'll likely
switch back to Fvwm.
And, yes, I am aware of FvwmRearrange, but it doesn't do what I want;
I want to be able to say "give me a two-column layout" and have two
columns even if there are three windows on the current page.
I'm also aware of FvwmPartition, but since it doesn't appear to have
been worked on for a while, and it's still in "alpha" state, I'd rather
roll my own.
I'm not intending to try to make my tiling module (FvwmTiler?) as
powerful as XMonad's layout system, but if I can construct the layouts
*I* want, then that would be enough for me.
