Rewriting anything other than very-low-level systems software *in C* probably *is* something to be ashamed of, though.
Well, whatever. About the only thing most people have trouble with in C is memory management, and there's not much of that happening in a window manager. grepping through the source code for aewm I see one instance of malloc, when a new client window is created.
I personally have written web apps in C, usually with a tcl wrapper around them. It sure is nice to get an error message with a line number instead of staring a plain white web page wondering what I did wrong.
