I agree with Sander, that it might be a good idea to remove
swapping completely (vertical swapping can be achieved through
moving afterwards anyways). And since the LarsWM discussion
proved, that people don't use swapping at all, I think it is a
good idea to get rid of this complexity (I actually only used
swapping within columns, otherwise always moving).
