I'm happily using RESIZEHINTS with urxvt to avoid the redraw bug that
has been discussed here a number of times. I don't mind the little extra
space around my terminal windows, actually it doesn't really matter
whether I have the extra space outside the window or inside the window
(between the last row/column of text and bottom/right window border).
Either way there's space wasted and at least in my case there's not

I reckon it looks good too. So my vote is no.

Tiling does *not* have to mean without any pixels in between. It's just
an idea of using as much space as possible (which happens to change in
large steps for text terminals). If you look at the tiles in my
bathroom, there's about 2mm space between them :).

This would be unorthogonal. Nobody forces anyone to use the feature. But
I'm sure there's a number of users that find it sensible.
