ok nice
it restacks every tiled window below the focused one, my solution
restacks every floating window on top of the stack and raises the
focused separately

separating the raisefocused and raisefloating introduces a bit more
complexity+SLOC in my code but it saves a few cpu cycles i guess ;)

umm my dwm patch would be huge
here is raisefloating() which is only called in non-floating
layout->arrange() functions
raisefocus() is called in event.c, client.c and in layout.c as it was
in your restackless patch

raisefloating(void) {
        Client *c;
        XEvent ev;
        if (!sel)
        if (lt->arrange != floating)
                for(c = clients; c; c = c->next)
                                XRaiseWindow(dpy, c->win);
        XSync(dpy, False);
        while(XCheckMaskEvent(dpy, EnterWindowMask, &ev));
