I`ve Googled for a CLI controlled WM, but no luck so far. Seems like a natural to me.
All WM aspects would be controlled by CLI and/or non XML config. file, easy to use.
A rational approach.
Just raw basic window management, the tray, menus, desktop, etc. are all separate apps.

There are lots of keyboard-shortcut-driven WM's out there, like ratpoison, xmonad or evilwm.

TinyWM is fairly basic... (50 lines of C)

Its a thread called "30 Window Managers in 30 days" and all are available from Debian repos.
