Going to show off what I've been working on the last three weeks; my own window manager. It's basically MonsterWM with some EWMH compliancy to work with 3rd party panels, pagers and window switchers. Minimizing clients is still on the todo-list, but there are some bugs I have to squish first.
I'm just putting it out here to get it known by people that I know can handle beta software (I haven't had any crashes ever (duh, it's based on an already stable and widely used WM!), but there are some strange things now and then) and who can possibly contribute some as I am mostly hitting dead ends now in my attempts to solve the remaining bugs.
It has multiple layout à la MonsterWM:
If you are interested in trying this out or reviewing the code, the GitHub repository can be found here: https://github.com/Unia/dragonflywm
I'm pretty good at breaking stuff so I'll give it a go next time I get some time on my laptop
Great! Although I'm not sure I want to see the list of bugs growing....
It'll grow whether you want it to or not. You'll never find all the problems on your own. I certainly can't, even though the people who pay me think I can.
Looks promising. I'll have to give it a try.

Any chance we could have a "normal" config file? Also how about an AUR package?
BTW if you wish to contact me, send me an e-mail instead of a PM.
A normal configuration file is not what I have on my todo list, at least for now. Partly this is because I don't know how to but also because I feel this window manager should be minimal. If I get more request, I might be willing to implement this when everything else is done and there are no bugs remaining.
Same goes for the AUR package, I don't deem the window manager to be stable enough yet.
