Yes, I at least found:
# WindowSizer (shareware, closed source)
# WinSplit (freeware, closed source)
# DockBox (NOW GPL)
# GridMove (donationware, not closed source) - Actually GridMove was the
inspiration for bug.n.
But as you stated before, all those projects were not satisfying the
needs of dynamic window management; thus I looked for an open source
project, which I possibly could adapt. Now (since 20080910) DockBox - or
maybe even better: HashTWM (same author) - is under GPL, so I will take
a closer look.

Are you wainting for a stabilized API (since GINA already has gone in
Vista)? Are you still heading for a shell replacement?

Kind regards, joten
