The current tiled layout has evolved for several years, and it's
very predictable, simple and efficient to use. That's why I
called the idea I presented 'random' - in the end everything is
a matter of taste and being-used-to...

So people, don't get afraid that I'm going to replace dwm with
such functionality without having checked this in a rapid
prototype. Often such ideas behave much worse than expected in
reality ;)

And besides this, I have more important things on my TODO list
