I personally find MOD+[Function-key] much nicer to use than your special characters.

Good for you.

Could be the case, as I said it wasn't really tested. That being said what
artifacts do you encounter? Upon a ~10 second test I didn't notice something
completely broken. Just to make sure it doesn't happen with the master branch,

Well it does the same thing as in dwm. I think your confusing it with toggletag.

I thought there was a wiki page about the tagging concept but upon a quick search
I didn't find it...

> 'view' brings a tag into view (and discards any other tags from the view)

displays all windows with a given tag

> 'tag' "sends" a client to a tag (much like "send to dekstop" does in most wms)

applies a given tag to the focused window

> 'toggletag' brings a tag into your current view.

No, it adds/removes a given tag to/from the focused window

> 'toggleview' doesn't seem to do...anything.

adds/removes all windows with a given tag to/from the view

Hope that helps.
