Yes; the coolest thing about FVWM IMO (aside from the modules concept,
which I like) is that it always pays close attention to the keyboard:
_any_ FVWM operation can be bound to a key, if you like.  I know many
people who use a rich graphical environment, including multiple screens
and desktops, and who never use the mouse for _any_ WM operations.

Note the dotfiles collection has a graphical configurator module for
FVWM.  I haven't tried it in a long time so I don't know how many of the
fancier features are available.
