I've never written any window manager, but :

 * look in xcb-util, there a small window manager written by Jamey
 * read all the standards on freedesktop.org (ICCCM, netwm, etc...)
 * maybe look at some other window manager. e17 is a veyr good one. It
respects the standards. But it's a big huge, now :)
