Default Is xorg necessary.......

Is the installation of xorg necessary to use some other window amanager? What I mean is installing xorg installs whole lot of things like x tools and apps (xcal, xclock........ and yes its own window manager (twm i guess)) which we don't use as in most cases we install our own preferred apps and window manager.

So is it possible to install minimal X ?

Just curious.
