I got another idea, maybe it will increase the dynamic approach
of wmii ;)

What about simply combining 'swap' and 'move' into one action
(which could be still called swap)? Such an action creates
columns on the attempt to swap with a non-existent column at
boundaries. E.g. if only 1 columns exists with 2 clients, a swap
east would create a new column and move the focused client
