That is a neat summary. But in contrast to your girl, wmii
manages everything in a predictable way (at least in wmii-3 it
should do so). That's the difference. And because it is
predictable, you simply know where a window is. This is pretty
much the same to the scenario you put specific windows always
in the same place.
