In case there are people who did not try Sawmill, I'd second the
emphasis here.  It is highly configurable. I've redone many
configuration options to work like WindowMaker, including the alt-resize
thing. I don't use Sawmill because it does not (neither does gnome)
support workspace-specific backgrounds and a few other features found in
WindowMaker and Enlightenment (send window to workspace n, etc).  At the
rate it improves, Sawmill will probably do these things someday.  

Its a minus for Sawmill that, in order to be a "power user", you have to
be a Lisp afficionado. For me, that's a downer.  You don't need Lisp to
find your way through configuraiton of WindowMaker or Enlightnment...

I used the Sawmill gui config tool to generate most of the settings I
wanted.  If you want, I think you can just copy these into your
.sawmillrc to see what they do.  The Button1-A-Click1 means use the Alt
key, with button 1, and then you click 1 time, it will move-window
interactively. I've got Alt-Button3 with move window interactively. 
These are fun to explore.

(popup-window-menu . "Button3-Click1") (move-window-interactively .
"Button1-Move") (toggle-window-shaded . "Button1-Click2")
(resize-window-interactively . "Button2-Move") (raise-lower-window .
(custom-set-keymap (quote window-keymap) (quote (keymap
(resize-window-interactively . "Button3-A-Click1")
(move-window-interactively . "Button1-A-Click1")
(move-window-interactively . "Button1-M-Click1") (popup-window-menu .
"Button2-M-Click1") (raise-lower-window . "Button3-M-Click1")
(send-to-next-workspace . "C-M-Right") (send-to-previous-workspace .
"C-M-Left") (lower-window . "C-M-Down") (raise-window . "C-M-Up"))))
(custom-set-variable (quote move-resize-raise-window) (quote t))
