I'm already using a WM written in python, it's called Pycawm. It use Xlibs and I was thinking of trying to port it to xcb.
Here samourai-x is already using xcb so I'm going to take a close look at it.

I used to run a tweaked pwm (ion ancestor) written in C but I'm not very good at C so it was hard to add stuff.

Python is much easier for me as I use it daily at work,
so in a few days I changed all the things I wanted and got to the same point of my old wm which took me years (not fulltime) to tweak.
