No that would be less flexible. The current way allows even
master-only arrangements which is quite useful for log-analyzing
(at least in the use cases I used it just some hours ago).

I think it would be less functional, simply use NMASTER = 1, and
increase the clients in the master area only on demand.

That looks like an interesting idea. I will think about it.

st is on its way, but slower than excepted. The base is ready
(pts/pty handling, fork()'ing), but the drawing/rendering/window
creation stuff hasn't been implemented yet.
