For some time i have been thinking about applying the concept of
tiling window management to the console. As a result i have
written dvtm, you can check it out here:


dvtm is highly inspired by dwm and reuses some of it's code, so
dwm users will probably be familiar with it. dvtm depends on
libncurses and a patched version of librote[1] which handles the
terminal emulation stuff. Install instruction can be found on the
website mentioned above.

dvtm comes with 3 standard layouts (tile,bstack,grid). In contrast
to dwm it currently doesn't have a status bar and therefore doesn't
read from stdin, it also has no support for tagging this may or may
not change in the future.

Note that dvtm is in early development so there are still bugs in
both dvtm and the underlying terminal emulation library.
Feel free to fix them and send me a patch.

Comments and suggestions are always welcome.
