My favourite combo is sawfish (CoolClean Theme) with tkdesk (Be'ish
style) instead of gnome-panel. Sawfish is not much heavier than icewm
but has an additional xkill window menu item. OTOH, icewm can iconize
windows to the screen and not just hide them. Icewm is better than
asclassic insofar as there are buttons to toggle the full screen
window view. 

If you want a really leightweight window manager, go for flwm.
