Linux Lennart Poettering, the author of systemd, has announced: "I just put a first version of a wiki document together that lists a couple of easy optimizations to get your boot times down to [less than] 2s. It also includes a list of suggested things to hack on to get even quicker boot-ups."

Not sure what you meant by"drag handles", but if you you want varying sized tiles, than you're probably looking for a dynamic tiler.

No idea about Awesome. I'm not a fan of Lua.

You've basically highlighted the main problem with tilers. They need to fit you like a second skin, or they're bollocks. Probably why you see a lot of people WM hopping until they find one that works for them.

Bluetile can be configured to let you resize your tiles by grabbing the border between two windows and dragging. (Like the splitter widgets used to implement things like file manager sidebars)

What specifically do you mean by "dynamic tiler"? I've never heard the term before.

Not necessarily. I'd settle for something that implements enough of the de facto standard interactions from floating WMs that I could ease myself into it. (Again, something Bluetile scores well on. dwm-derived WMs like AwesomeWM seem to revel in making sure as few keybindings are shared with floating WMs as possible.)

Dynamic basic means manual in my simpleton-lingo. Sorry for the confusion.

Hmm,
I personally prefer the Master-Stack model found Dwm/Xmonad/SpectrWM, but maybe you might like something like WMFS2.

Project Page: http://wmfs.info/
ArchWiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/WMFS2
Decent Guide: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic/18819/wmfs2-guide/

Supposed to offer the best of both tiling and stacking worlds, at least according to the people that talk about it (and the screenshots).

Very little experience with Awesome and no experience with Bluetile, so I can't help you there. Awesome can probably do what you're asking as well.
