Selectwm is a simple but robust program that will let you pick a window manager (or other executable) to run at X startup, and optionally after a window manager exits. It uses the GTK+ toolkit, and includes options like a timer to start the default window manager, and modification of the window manager list from within selectwm.

And you can do the usual operations: erase files and directories, create directories, erase directories recursively... on both the local and the remote computer.
