Nice feature! i've not tested yet.

tomorrow i've 20h of travel , so i'll have time during the fly :)

but the idea looks good and seems simple, interesting and useful.

This configuration colides with the inc/dec nmaster keybindings

The mod1-shift-{h,l} keys i use them to inc/dec hratio in a bigger
proportion than mod1-{h,l}, but this is ok. i can live without them,
or i'll think another keys for this.
