wmii can come in many "flavours":
     bash, plan9, python, ruby
but I have no expertise to compare them.

When I came to use wmii, some years ago, after a while I chose to use it
through the plan9 wmiirc, thinking that it was more in the logic of the
wmii project, and that it let a higher degree of configuration. But I don't
know if this is true, and the /usr/local/plan9 folder is more then 200 Mb
on my hard disk.

Which are the advantages of one flavour over the other? Which are the pros
and cons? Why and how to chose one over the other?

Does it make sense to compare them considering usability, flexibility and
control possibilities, easiness of configuration, architectural elegance
and logical consistency?
And of course their needs for resources (e.g, memory usage, hard disk
space, cpu load).

Thanks for suggestions and insights,
