Ah, I see. I don't use the mouse for what I described, so as long as
full screen windows can still be tiled my use case is covered. Great!

I cannot judge the cost of additional complexity to dwm's source. But
I think being able to use certain sucky apps in 'full-screen-tiling'
mode actually makes the world suck a little bit less. I don't believe
e.g. evince or chromium will be 'fixed' anytime soon in this regard.
