Yes, I think you are right. Furthermore, horizontal tiling (Anselm's notation)
could be useful for some other geoms (eg "bottom").

It is a good idea. In the patch there are now four layouts called:
        "-|=", ntilevv
        "-||", ntilevh
        "||=", ntilehv
        "|||", ntilehh
to fit all the cases: 2 small screens, 2 big screens, 1 small and/or 1 big
screen. People can safely remove from the patch those ones they don't

I hope it was what you were thinking about :).

Kind regards,
