I agree on that. Having different functions for different types of
layout keep things simple, and also keeps it quite trivial to add a
new layout. c->isfloat was introduced as an option/hack to enforce
floating for apps that just won't behave in any other layout. Using it
to get rid of dofloat() is conceptually wrong, and 35 sloc just isn't
worth that I think.

Greetings, Sander.
