Just guessing here, y'all are having trouble imagining how bare-bones
twm is compared to the typical WM or DE.

But I *am* saving your suggestions against the day that I get fed up
with the effort I expend bludgeoning features and details into
submission to my eccentricities and go for something with more
frills. :-)

I have the USB wireless dongle working; have it doing DHCP (new to me)
with my router. Now I have to go out into the great wide world and try
it with some other wireless access point.  Then I can try to get
wpa_supplicant working. (Or does that happemautomatically?) And something
with iptables  that doesn't block the DHCP negotiation.

Oh, wait, I have a few more unwanted features to bludgeon. :-)
