 FSWM "Full Screen Window Manager"
 MOWM "MOnocle Window Manager"
 XTWM "X Tiling Window Manager"

source and removing some parts.

I have kept mwfac because I think i maybe nice to have a layout where
the screen is split into two sections (just realised I should have
kept zoom() then). Floating layout is still there because I think it
is nice to be able to handle floats and apps like gimp in a flexible

Client numbering is a bit screwed up to. This because clients are
added to the list of clients in a fifo fashion and I have not figured
out how to change this behavior. Do I need to change booth attach and

And I hope I have not screwed up in some licensing manner.

Here it is I some one would like to check it out.
