This sounds good - I can't wait to try it!

But I want to make a suggestion before everyone becomes to accustomed to
these key presses. I think it would make more sense to swap things
around, using $MODKEY-2 for switching to a workspace and $MODKEY-Shift-2
for tagging a client.

The reason is that changing workspaces should be a more common activity
than moving a client around. At least I'm assuming this is true for
others as well. Once I get a set of clients up and running where I want
them, I'm switching between existing clients and workspaces much more
frequently than changing the setup.

And pressing $MODKEY and a number is easier than also pressing shift,
especially with one hand.
