Sorry it was my mistake to make this change and I realized it is
against the dwm philosophy. That's because I removed it asap
again and I hope I won't repeat such mistake.

I think the patch page is for experimental features which can be
applied to the mainstream distribution. If a patch feels well
after a longer time of testing, it might be an option to be
added officially. But the bottom stack feature does not really
scale for all scenarios I used it, the reason for this is quite
simple: 40% screen height is lesser then 100% screen height for
clients which don't need extraorbitant widths (like terminals).
