xmonad is lightweight due to its memory footprint:

ddc at ddclpc:~ $ ps -o %mem,args -p 5836
 0.2 /home/ddc/.xmonad/xmonad-x86_64-linux

If You trade the disc consumption for the configurability and flexibility, go 
install dwm.

Or just install ghc, configure xmonad and through ghc out, if You can't stand 
it wasting Your disc space.
