Hello Anselm,

I like what you outlined. But I have some questions.

If I open a new window, it would be more handy for me if the default is
to open it in a new column. Because for most programs I use it is more
important to see more of the vertical than the horizontal part (e.g. ls,
editing text). If the default is to open a new "row" that would be a
waste of place (even on my 12" screen). This was the reason for me not
to use wmii.

So I would like to know what the reason is for the default "open in the
same column in row" is. (Perhaps I can improve my way of working :) .)

Perhaps it is possible to have the option between those two ways?

And two more questions:
- would there be no maximise / monocle?
- would there be no floating?
