[mythtv-users] Lightweight window manager recommendation

I'm using the most lightweight one of all:  none!

I'm running gentoo and have the following in my inittab:
(on line actually)

c7:45:respawn:/bin/su adam -l
-c /usr/X11R6/bin/xinit /usr/local/bin/mythfrontend

This automatically restarts if X or mythfrontend dies.
If I need to do anything but run mythfrontend, I do it from an ssh
session, or if that's not working, in runlevel 2.
