Except that it doesn't do compositing yet, I recommend XMonad for your
WM (or any other tiling window manager).  On such a small screen, it
should solve alot of difficulties you have in placing windows in a
reasonable space.  There is no gui to configure it either, but you
have the same barrier both ways.  At least this way you're not using
something as inelegant as devilspie.
