I came to a similar conclusion when making a monocle offspring with
focus sensibility. Shortest i found so far was:

focus(Client *c) {
+ if ( ISFOCUSARRANGE ) // for monocle
+ layouts[ltidx].arrange();

and put this into config.h:

+#define ISFOCUSARRANGE isarrange(monocle)

This will allow your layout to rearrange on focus changes.

Thanks for the idea of viewing clientspertag as a kind of reading
glass. I'm curious how it would feel like.
