Well, after this whole discussion I can live with following

- keeping a horizontal swap for the price to remove the
  shortcuts of vertical swap at least
- improving mouse-base move

Conceptually I'd also keep the up/down swapping in swap
internally, although it might be bound to move-shortcuts,
because it is nothing else than a swap from keyboard POV.

I believe that people will ask for removal of swap in a few
months, because they will drop using it like me or Sander,
after a while of settlement with column layout.

At least I will re-discuss this again.
