I honestly think removing incnmaster for some 'setnmaster' would be a
very bad idea. No code would be saved, and no bindings would be saved
either unless we come up with some 'togglenmaster', which would
involve *more* code and be less configurable. Also, having special
'set' bindings instead of the simple I-to-Increase, D-to-Decrease, is
far harder to remember.

"The window manager adapts to the current environment and helps the
user manage and mold it to his needs, rather than forcing it to use a
preset, fixed layout and trying to shoehorn all windows and
applications into it."

You're suggesting we force users into a preset, fixed layout. That
doesn't seem right to me.
