Well in that scenario you will get huge gaps, without any
relaxation algorithm which tries to optimize the available rest
space among the apps (and you get better results if you provide
the space to all apps than to the last app, in hg repo there has
been a version which implements your proposal, but it sucked like
pain in the ass, that's because I optimized the alignment.
However in hg tip this is not the case anymore (in wmii-3.x it's
the default algorithm), dunno the reason, but JG uncommented
some stuff for testing the alignments before he retired.

I often think you have some problem to remember things
adequately. We discussed the switch to Markdown long ago, and
there was a taggi1 version with Markdown syntax already long
ago. Then JG told he will do a replacement in ruby or something
else, but he never did it. Then I decided if no one does it, I
have to do it. Now taggi2 works with Markdown syntax and I ask
people to convert the not-yet-onverted pages into Markdown.
So shut this fuck up please and stop insulting my intelligence.
