Ok, but I still haven't seen any hint here on this list, what this
new concept should be (maybe you can tell me). And up to then I'm
anyways stuck with the same columns as in wmii-3. And as long as
I tend to have my client I work with larger than others (why should
I not use the space?), swapping is the only fast method to move
clients around.
(Btw. I don't use this method always, on other tasks I may be fine
having my clients side by side in two columns or so, but for most
editing tasks e.g. I really prefer this master-tile-swapping.)
