For me, with a 1024x768 desktop, the right column is always very
narrow. With this new layout, when I have 2 client windows, the second
one is more usable. With more than 2 I use the zoom...which you report
as broken. I'll look to fix it.

All this layout stuff is of course a matter of taste. It should be
possible to have several layouts and have the possibility to stick a
specific one for a certain tag and also to change it on-the-fly with a
 key shortcut.

Quite easy indeed. Apply this patches;file=client.c;

(You'll need to apply the second patch by-hand because I have the key
bindings in a different file. Be aware that Next and Prev tag
shortcuts are included also)

It should work with any layout.
