I think deck like layouts are, in general, a bad idea. I'd implemented
a generalization of deck as part of a previous version of my xtile
patch that I ultimately decided to ditch. I don't want to repeat here
what I've already written in the "Why not deck area?" subsection of
the "Digressions" section of [1]. This is not to say that tabs are
wrong, just that having a deck area is an unnecessary and clumsy
workaround to get something dwm already provides another way, as
Anselm has explained very well somewhere else in this thread.
