I welcome any good proposal(s) regarding this. I'm not that happy with
Mod1-w/e either.

One idea was incorporating the F-keys, like Mod1-F1 .. Mod1-Fn for
monitor selection, and Mod1-Shift-F1 .. Mod1-Shift-Fn for client
propagation among them.

Also, I realized that with some minor changes to the current code
base, we can easily have classic multihead support as well, though
with the limitation of focusmon only (moving clients accross won't
work of course).

What's your view on this?

Kind regards,
