I was thinking about mentioning wmii. What makes it interesting to me
to me isn't that it allows you to do lots of stuff via external
programs - wmii is actually pretty wimpy compared to things like gwm
and plpwm - but that it's in the class of window managers that
actually manage windows, instead of forcing the user to do so. If you
hate resizing and moving windows in order to see what you're doing,
you should take a look at wmii & such.
