I think the behavior in vanilla dwm sucks less:
   - press MOD+1 to view tag 1
   - press MOD+1 again = no-op
   - press MOD+TAB to view previously selected tag
   - press MOD+m to set monocle layout
   - press MOD+m again = no-op
   - press MOD+space to use previously selected layout

The proposed change would add inconsistency, unless if people want the
second MOD+1 to jump to the previously selected set of tags or do some
other weird thing.

Then again, I only ever switch between two layouts, and only use MOD+space.
