and I'm not trying to define 'dynamic window manager' in the general
case. I'm explaining to you why your workflow is incompatible with

I can't make any of this make sense. If you want to reorder windows,
there's mod1+return. If you want a different layout, you can patch
that in. I suspect you're using five tags total and not
simultaneously... in which case you're misusing dwm.
