Sapphire is a window manager for X11R6. It is fairly minimal in
what it provides on screen: one toolbar, the usual window borders
and a popup menu from the root window.
It supports themes as X resource files, and the menu is editable.
If you install the 'menu' package, you'll get an automatically updated
'Debian' submenu of installed programs.
