Interesting info, what version of the HMC is it ? I don't remember seing FB on the P5 HMC that i could briefly get my hands on, but something all java based IIRC.
Wasn't Flux pushed on the HMC because of perf issues ?
I think I've read somewhere in a red book that it can become pretty sluggish when the number of managed servers increase past a certain treshold, but i cannot find back where exactly..

Still, FB has been my WM of choice for a few years, even on a modern computer. I'm very pleased to see it's maintained and evolves all the way to 1.0, even if it has never been unstable or too buggy for me.

I would definitely enjoy having a matching sleek looking file manager at my right click (like Explorer in BBlean - http://bb4win.sourceforge.net/bblean/)

but meanwhile, i can only recommend as a good companion the excellent Xfe, which is also about to reach the gold status:
