Well, why not use KWIN as your window manager in xfce4? just install KWIN with its dependencies (don't download recommended files with that or KDE will come down - which you don't want). run KWIN with the command kwin --replace and, Bob's your ...

A windowing system is a software component that provides windows for applications to draw in and can display these windows on the screen. The X Window System is the standard windowing system on Unix systems; outside Mac OS X, it doesn't really have competition (this may change if Wayland or Mir become viable).
