Very interesting.

Navigation: I think ordering new tabs close to the current tab in opera / firefox is equivalent to creating additional windows with the same tags as currently visible in dwm.

Overview: Good point. Dwm currently doesn't help here :(.

Grouping: Should we automatically create additional tags on the basis of process name + few (configurable) arguments. That would group all xterms and surf instances together at the same time respecting user tags.

Persistency: Oh man... I would love this feature :). Is there a way to store tag information in the client windows?
