I agree with what you say, just have to correct a couple of things you don't have to have your mouse in the window you are working on. You can choose from sloppy focus , click focus & auto raise in the config menu. You can also hand edit your menu so you can have things one click / two click away ie putting things commonly used in the root of the menu rather than in accessories -> internet -> etc. you'll find the blackbox menu in /usr/X11R6/share/Blackbox/menu or you can sepcify your own custom menu in your .blackbox.rc

I am not sure of ALT-TAB in twm but in Blackbox using bbkeys it is easy to program keys to do whatever you like. I tried enlightenment, windowmaker, gnome, kde, cde, twm, fvwm, olm, icewm, sawfish & blackbox and the wm I always came back to was Blackbox, small codebase, Clean and fast... what more do you need ?
I am not sure how hard it would be to change it, but the main thing I have against blackbox is that it wanted me to have the mouse pointer in the window to use the window. I didn't like that. I also like the toolbar on icewm where my most used apps are just a single click away, rather digging through a menu to get to it, and if you don't want to look at it all the time, (but I sort of like the clock, CPU, and ppp monitors.) simply auto hide it. I do have to say the blackbox has a very attractive appearance, and did consider if for a while, but in the end for the slightly larger foot print, and convienence of ice.
I think the best advice is to just try them all, and choose the one that feels best to you, after all isn't that what most of us have done?
