is there a gnustep window manager that uses only gnustep-gui? no x dependency at all.

Currently, no.

Is it possible to create one?

Yes. But you will have to consider two things:

1) -gui is not thread-safe
2) what about non-GNUstep applications, ie. legacy X11 programs?

The best way to do that (ie. solve the problem of #2) would be a backend
that had an integrated window manager.

That means an x backend will have an integrated x window manager and a directfb backend will also have its integrated window manager? How would legacy x11 programs with direct dependencies on x work on a direcfb system?
