Is there a way to make Openbox behave like the Compiz Grid plugin?

I've been happily using Compiz with the Grid plugin on Ubuntu 10.04 on my Mini Inspiron netbook. However, due to battery life issues, I'm considering downgrading to a lighter Ubuntu derivative, and would like to try Lubuntu, which uses the Openbox window manager. I'm wondering, is there any way to make Openbox behave a bit more like a tiling window manager, in a manner similar to the Compiz Grid plugin?

There is PyTile:

PyTile automatically tiles all windows. It allows tiling of an arbitrary number of windows in up to 9 columns.
