Developers, et. al:

I downloaded and built wmii-2 recently and love it. However, I was frustrated
with the grid layout. I have an odd display size (3200x1200) -- when this is
gridded I get odd-ratio frames.

So I recoded the get_base_geometry function to generate the number of
rows/columns such that each frame is as close as possible to a pre-set `golden'
aspect ratio. For my display, this is much more useful.

My questions are:

 1 - The ratio is currently a constant in the code, but it probably should be a
     value which can be set according to your file-system view of things. I'm
     not familiar enough with the virtual file system to know how to do that.

 2 - I think others might be interested in the code change. How do I submit a
     patch for testing?

I have really enjoyed the switch to wmii. I look forward to more customization
