tmux (or dvtm, or tabbed, or other multiplexer) run locally inside
wm make sense for logically (according to one's logic) or technically
connected windows. For me, an irc session is such case -- runs in (what
would be in dwm) bottom layout in dvtm+dtach: sic in one window, log
tail in the other.

The gain of persistent sessions as with tmux and dvtm+dtach is obvious
but is another story.
