You should read again what I wrote, I didn't compare Chrome to actual
inferior designs, I compared it with a theoretical thin layer and the
pattern I'm using is: less code -> less bugs, less code -> higher
likelihood of better security, less code -> higher likelihood and
better performance. Also note that this pattern is not an absolutism
(as your judgements seem to be).

If you disagree with this, let me know.

That true, but it's also true that it was me that came up with dwm
after a while when you where still insisting to keep wmii going and
that a WM should have a 9P interface, editable tagbars and what not.
To put some pepper into these wounds, let's have some charts: (now) (when I stopped with wmii) (now)

SLOC of wmi-10 (for the record):

SLOC Directory SLOC-by-Language (Sorted)
12952 src_top_dir cpp=12952
459 top_dir sh=459
28 examples sh=28
0 man (none)
