Well I currently think about shortcuts to the desired
functionality. Currently we have inchratio() bound to
Mod1-{h,l}, and Mod1-{j,k} for up/down navigation. This feels
convenient, even if it breaks consistency. Besides this, there
is Mod1-Shift-{j,k} for dec-/incrementing nmaster.

However, with dwm-4.4 we will have the vertical ratio as well,
and I believe it is a better idea to have two distinct

Hence, I propose the following:

Mod1-{j,k} -> focusclient() up down
Mod1-{h,l} -> incnmaster() inc dec
Mod1-Shift-{h,l} -> inchratio() inc dec
Mod1-Shift-{j,k} -> incvratio() inc dec

I tested this proposal for a couple of minutes and it doesn't
feels bad, at least not worse than before. I also think that
changing the ratio is usually a rare operation.

Any complains?
