It's SLOC is ok, but two issues for me:

(i) It features a kind of 'static' window management model in the
tradition of ion/wmi(i)/i3.

(ii) The IPC mechanism reminds me of all the mistakes I made in wmi
(with wmiremote) and later wmii with wmiir/libixp.

I can't comment on musca which it claims to be an influence as well though.

But good to see another tiling WM being around, as this at least gives
some hope that the tiled world will have some impact on mainstream
interfaces (actually I believe they already had quite a lot of impact
when looking at mobile OS'es like Android).
