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."

actually I think dwm has the features you want. Mod+j will move the master/stack split right (I think, and k does left, idk it's not a combo I know well, I tend to have to fiddle a bit to find the right combo.) theming is a hex color edit and recompile away. And different tabs (or programs) can be set to float or tile by default.

Requiring a recompile to modify the config automatically denies it the status of "easy to customize". That's why I started my experiments with AwesomeWM.

...and I've already got those two particular features in AwesomeWM. They're trivial. The hard parts are adding a complete set of mouse-based interactions so I don't have to waste time going for the keyboard if my hand is already on the mouse, making menus XGrabPointer so you don't have to click within them to close them, and using a horizontally-tiled pixmap to theme titlebars so you can get subtle gradients.

make & make install seems easy enough to me. Then again my needs are not your needs. I use the keyboard extensively and could care less about the mouse. So atleast in my usage case all the features you want are available to me.
