Hmm...not my thing. And I have to say this makes things as less dynamic
as the manual creation of empty columns which has been voted against in
the past. There is no good algorithm to generally tell whether to create
a new column for a new client or not. I may like to use this behaviour
in one view but not in another, so I'd have to set this flag for my
often-used views upon start-up of wmii and then I think we're somewhere
in the area of predefining layouts which AFAIK is not wanted...
