From the ICCCM manual posted above:
width = base_width + (i × width_inc)
height = base_height + (j × height_inc)
Window managers are encouraged to use i and j instead of width and
height in reporting window sizes to users.

It seems better to leave the extra space to the wm.

Applied, thanks.

There's still a resize problem when the window is first mapped : no
StructureNotify events are send by the wm when a newly created window
is tiled.
I've attached a screenshot of the result.
To solve this, I resize (explicitly) the window after mapping it (see
XXX in run()) but I guess there's a better way.
