why not implement a "master" and "tile" area inside the tiling
area? I mean...more than two vertical clients in the stack area
for a single monitor (and most of the dual screen uses) will go.

This is my idea:

| | | |
| | |----|
| | | |

Splitting this in two monitors can become into a two nice possibilities:

+----------+ +-----------+
| | | | |
| | | |-----------|
| | | | |
+----------+ +-----------+

or just a master in the first screen and a 'dwm like tile' in the

This concept is somewhat a dwm layout inside a dwm layout and don't
know if this is a good idea, or it needs more flexibility, but it
fits very well with the ideas in 4.8.

The nmaster for more than two clients in the master area is useless,
so we can just implement a two-client tile in master area as another

What I really miss is the cpt patch :)

Anselm: what do you think about this idea?
