Yea tmux is cool. So is dvtm, try that too.

I doubt that requiring an extra keystroke will be accepted by mainline
dwm, but it seems feasible to implement. I expect such a change would
require a patch of dwm because i don't know how it could be done
external to dwm. If you want to hire me to write that patch, let me
know. See for something that
might be similar to what you want.
