I'm not sure. Usually I use NMASTER=1 and only in very rare
cases I use arrangements with more than a single master client.
So, in my workflow I reorder stacked clients only through
zoom'ing them into master area in the order I want them (so the
last master client is zoomed back all the time).

Due the fact that dwm prepends the overall client list, the
clients at the end of the stack are those, who have had the
least attention so far (of course they could contain monitoring
stuff). But I'm really curios if the golden ratio tile will be
of advantage for me.

We will see, but thanks for your proposal. It might make sense.
