You can't write to a geom file in a global namespace, because it
is not clear which tag is affected. A client can be visible in
different views, thus a client has different geometries at a
time. In th /client/ namespace it is indecidable which client is
effected, that's why you need to write to

        /view/m/n/geom or /tag/m/n/geom (wmii-3)
        /tag/<tag>/n/p/geom (wmii-4)
