I'm not entirely up on who supports what, but, for example, WMaker can
be used as the WM for both GNOME and KDE.  Or could at points in past.
With full support of the various DE symantics.

Mind:  if you'll tolerate a certain level of missing features, you can
pretty much run _any_ WM within a given DE.
