Actually, larswm can be configured to allow specific programs to open
their own untiled windows making things like Mozilla much easier to use.
It has to be done by editing config files (no simple GUI here) and is
not, as my old physics professor would say, "Intuitively obvious to the
casual observer," but the docs help.

There are a _bunch_ of other "derivatives" of 9wm including w9wm (9wm
hacked to add workspaces), aewm, aewm++, alloy, evilwm et. al. Note:
some of these are second and third derivatives :-)
