I need unicode support. And I like grouping+tabbing different
aps together like gvim+terminal.

Well, I like  fluxbox, but I was curious and today tried openbox.
Fluxbox has this excellent tabing and I prefer more non-xml
configuration files. But aside from that, openbox seems
every time just a little bit better. Little more mature, little
better middle-button desktop menu, little more configurable,
better configuration tools, little better  documentation.
Fluxbox panel is good but I prefere lx-/fb-panel anyway.
