I agree. i have never found useful RESIZEHINTS. imho is useless code

I like to see all windows tiled to fit the whole space they can. This
is why it's called 'tiling'. Having blank spaces between windows is
strange and noisy.

The only logical place i can imagine for it is for the floating terminals.

I really dislike to keep contraints when tiling. I would prefer to drop
its support. (Having it optional with RESIZEHINTS is ok, but theres some
of useless code that can be removed).

When did you find this feature useful?
