It's basically the old "multiple desktops" approach.

Think of your tags being numerical (0, 1, 2, 3, ..., n) and being
called "workspace" instead of "tag".

The maximum workspace number "n" is dynamic, e.g. you can create and
remove workspaces on the fly.

Every client always belongs to exactly one workspace (which one that
is can be changed of course).

You can select the workspace you want to see, either via "next" and
"previous" or via direct selection.

Workspace 0 is always invisible (think "minimized" or "iconified").

Special keybindings move your client to workspace 0 ("detach") or grab
it from there ("attach"). This can also be used to move clients from
one workspace to another: detach, switch workspace, reattach.


PS: dwm-mitch has also been updated to dwm 3.5 and dmenu 2.2.
    The float-regexps work now! I wonder that nobody has missed them :-)
