Well, after a while of using it, I found out that I could use some more
functionality, because I want the dictionary only displayed when viewing
certain tabs in the browser. That of course means that dictionary will be in
the different tag and I will toggleview it when I need it. So, what
I seem to need now is a different master size for a combination of tags. Uh
oh, this is starting to look really dangerous now. Any ideas how I can get
the functionality I want without seriously hacking dwm?
