Sounds like a perfect candidate for Blackbox 0.61.x, packaged in Woody
and Sid. Using a flat color style (such as the included `minimalist'
style), you'd be hard-pressed to find a wm with lower resource
consumption. It's as fast as twm with a LOT more functionality, such as
multiple pages, Debian Menu support, window shading, iconification,
support for WindowMaker dockapps, and menu-based configuration. Beware
that the blackbox package in Potato is 0.51.x, and is not as well
supported anymore; building 0.61.1 is as easy as adding a testing
deb-src line to /etc/apt/sources.list and calling `apt-get source -b
