FWIW, another alternative is to extend the client movement functions
with the ability to insert at position n in the list of _currently
visible_ clients (so you can, eg, move the second client to somewhere
else and then move a different client into the second position). My
personal modifications to dwm do this and it works well for me. I
haven't posted any of my patches recently just because my
modifications to dwm are now relatively extensive and partly because
I'm currently using a experimental replacement for window titles
(which vanished from mainstream dwm many revisions back) which is
usable but isn't totally correct (eg, it sometimes leave unrepainted
areas of in windows).
