Of course, I wouldn't expect some mechanism to run a session on
host A to recover clients that had been running on B.
My point is more about "organized" views. I seldomly want to see
several web pages at once, so max mode and a single column is all
I need for browsing, maybe I have some other window temporarily
in a second column.
For work I often use two terminals side by side, columns in
default/equal mode (e.g. for a gnuplot graph).
But I'm unable to set this up on wmii startup. There's one single
default for the column mode. I have to do that manually each time
I login. Being able to tell wmii that I prefer "1 max column" when
viewing/creating "www" and "2 equal columns" when viewing/creating
"work" would be very nice. (something like that)

If you don't see the need and don't want to do it, ok. But the
number of multiuser hosts depends on where you work. In an office
you may have your own PC, but if you have different computers
dedicated for special uses, they just have to be multiuser. Nobody
can have his own PC everywhere... But you can have a network login
on any PC with personalized user environments. Multiuser capability
has in fact gotten more important over the last years with all those
networked environments everywhere.
