"StumpWM is a spiritual and visual descendent of Ratpoison,and shares many basic key commands. There are, however, some key points that set it apart from RP and, indeed, most/all other window managers [...] The ability to customise is virtually endless, and the interface is flexible and elegant. While the idea of using Lisp to customise your window manager might sound intimidating, StumpWM's methods of doing this are quite elegant and generally simple to do. If you've ever worked with customising Emacs to any degree, there's little to fear."

I generally use sawfish. It can have the best of both words.
You can use it with the mouse like a tipical wm, with overlapping windows. Or you can customize it using a lisp variant (much closer to scheme than clisp, with I think is much better) to perform any action by keystrokes.

You have also many plugins to do different things. And various methods for tiling windows. I'm still missing some way to make it tile like stumpwm does, however. Missing some emacs-like way.
