Re: [dev] [dwm] Why does gimp float by default

From my point of view, GIMP is most usable with tiling mode, since
then I don't have to resize the image windows manually all the time,
and the important windows are always fully visible.

In the way I use GIMP, I have the tool windows as slaves and the
current image window as the master. The images that I'm not editing at
the time are moved to another tag. Simple as that.
