That's exactly where I'm stuck too, right now. There seems no way
to JUST utilize Foundation/AppKit to write a WM, so you have to
"fall back" to using xgps/xdps function calls - or worse - Xlib
directly (which in my opinion is not an option at all).

I've been poking around the whole weekend to find out how to do
a "clean" check for another windowmanager already running, without
using Xlib, xgps or xdps directly.
AppKit doesn't provide any functionality for that. However, you could
use DPS-operators, which (again, in my opinion) is not really an option.
