Of course, if you really want TOTAL control of your GUI, a window

The same WM that LXDE uses. A little more work, but worth it.
i'll second the use of openbox. i use it with fbpanel.
i too believe that gnome just pulls in way too much "stuff".
the most inconvenient thing about not using gnome is not having a way
to handle USS mass storage devices.
Assuming you mean USB mass storage devices it can be solved by starting
the window manager in a ConsoleKit session. I run Blackbox and my
~/.xinitrc ends with
exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch blackbox
In the file manager PCManFM mounting and unmounting USB devices works
just fine. I run Debian Wheezy.
