I liked blackbox until bh took the keyboard stuff out and made you use
the bbkeys prog.

My new favorite is oroborus, a wm that even makes BB seem fat. 
It is about 5000 lines of c code. It was designed for people who love
kb control. It does not have a menu system although the author includes
a gtk menu prog. You can make it look quite nice with some hand config
which is necessary because the default theme is kind of ugly. Xsetroot
or something like it also helps.

It is perfect for people who would be happier if the mouse was never invented.
