With support for the latest freedesktop.org standards, as well as careful adherence to previous standards, Openbox provides an environment where applications work the way they were designed to."

pypanel seems to be mighty popular, but make sure you also check out:

Also, I highly recommend installing gmrun and bind it to some keyboard shortcut (like "W-e") in OpenBox. It's a simple gtk window which lets you start programs with tab-completion.
