I got a private mail pointing out that asking for the preference in WM
is somewhat similar to a asking for one's favorite editor or
programming language which is not what I intended, so I assume that
the wording was unfortunate. I didn't mean to ask about personal
preference, but wanted to see which WM might fit best for as a
"default setup", and would fit the requirements; more like "best for
this particular use case", not "personal favorite";

Given the "default setup" use, it wouldn't hurt if it was a reasonably
intuitive one :-).

Sorry for the confusion,
