I'm sorry that I can't elaborate on all of your mail atm, there is one
thing that might help you directly by helping you makeing use of the
managed mode more often. You CAN resize the columns. Yes, resizing by
pulling the border has gone (because it was decided that it was not too
useful, somehow), but you still can resize by Ā»Alt-Right
Click-PullingĀ« one of the corners. Hope that helps.

At the floating mode issues: Yes, floating window management sucks
quite much in current wmii versions. Please bear with us until it is
fixed in later versions.
