Maybe (probably?) not everywhere, but I believe definitally in most
places, arrange!=dotile is used to make sure than dwm doesn't do stuff
that applies only to tiled mode (such is mastertile zooming);
arrange==dofloat on the other hand is used for stuff that applies only
in floating mode (such is sizehint handling).

There may be some exceptions to this, but unless I'm very mistaken,
the way I described is the general case in dwm (so adding another mode
shouldn't be too much of a hassle).
