To prevent any confusion. The user has not to create manually
columns. He uses wmii like acme, he just creates a page with 2
or 3 columns (or simply 1 column if he uses a browser or

What the system makes dynamic is, that you can easily move
clients between columns and that you can on the fly change the
layout of a column, how it organizes the space for its clients.
