when discussing about simplifying the filesystem last night in IRC, I want to
make a proposal how the new file system could look like:

Old (just for reference):


New (proposal):

[The idea is to remove the column-representation in the fs-hierarchy,
because this is not used.]

/tag/NAME/0 (floating clients) (*)
/tag/NAME/1 (column 1) (*)

(*) Each tag contains a file pro area (0 == floating area, 1,... == columns), whereas each line looks as follows:

N <x> <y> <w> <h> <class:instance:name>\n

N is the global client index equivalent to /client/N/
The number of lines defines the number of clients in the area. The selected
client will be indicated with N==sel. <x> <y> <w> <h> indicates
the geometry of this client in this area, the rest is equivalent
to /client/N/props (however might be of use).

Commands like quit are executed in /ctl, commands which are client specific
like kill are executed in /client/sel/ctl (resp. /client/N/ctl).

view-specific commands are executed in:

/tag/sel/ctl (resp. /tag/NAME/ctl)

The bar is divided into a left bar and a right bar (whereas the first label of
the right bar is expanded and right-aligned like in wmii-3).
