I think it's also possible to remove floating layout from dwm and use
it as a "fallback" if arrange == NULL.

In my eyes floating does nothing which belongs to a arrange function.
The arrange function should only arrange the windows. In my opinion it
shouldn't handle things like the visibility of a window. With this in
mind the floating function is empty.
