Sounds interesting. I have never given any client more than one tag anyway,
I didn't find that very practical.
And I can imagine it could also solve my dictionary problem by
detaching/attaching it to the browser workspace (+ the individual master
size for that workspace). You know this was one of the things I was thinking
about recently. That is, any tag(well let's call it workspace) could have
sattelite minor tag where to send applications you don't need right now
(arg's stereo concept, but for each workspace). But I guess, one such
workspace (0) will be all that I need.
