mxflat.  It's minimal and stays out of my way, which is what I want of a
theme.  I never use the buttons or anything; if I were actually short on
screen real estate I'd probably eliminate the title bars entirely.

I used Ion for a while, and the tiling was interesting.  But I haven't
missed it enough to try out any of the tiling options in sawfish.  The
main advantage of the tiling (for me) was for window navigation, and I
have that already.

The only other feature I'd like is to improve prompt-menu (formerly
prext), since it currently doesn't work for, e.g., window operations.
But that's a project for me when I have the time and inclination, as I
doubt that's high on many peoples' list.  It's probably going to involve
some tweaks to the menu module in sawfish, unfortunately.

I've been using 'trayer' for a while, but I'm not convinced there's any
point in having a trayer, honestly.

Combination of mouse (rarely) and keybindings.  Mostly I create bindings
using app.jl to go directly to the window I want, and use keybindings to
navigate viewports and workspaces.
