On second thought, I'd rather have the WM support this behavior. In a way, it
already does: when wmii-3 is run, it starts with a default view "1" which has
_no_ clients!

I want the same kind of functionality to be more generally available in the WM.
For example, I want to make a new empty view and focus it; if the view is empty
when I move away from it, then the WM should destroy it. This is just like what
Jeremy described: "an empty can only exist while it is current".
