Umm. I wanted several clients to be maximized in a page. I then want
to be able to switch between those clients per $MOD-Tab. I think this
was the original behaviour of the max-layout. Have so many internal
structures changed, that simply importing the old code of the
max-layout doesn't work?

Tabs are ugly. I don't want them. Expecially not, if there is no
titlebar (which is good).

Nevertheless it should be possible to have *one* window maximized, to
watch a movie for example.
