Actually, I already use the pertag patch and it's not what I'm looking
for. 'Cause dwm use a fixed number of tags.

For example, if I want a third application for chat (I don't know, say
pidgin) I have to create a new tag, and it's not very handy to create a
new tag for each new application I install.

Plus, this layer system may help to simulate tabs (even more powerful
'cause we can have layouts).

Thanks anyway, may be I should try to implement it myself.
