It's possible, it's just ugly and rather pointless. You just have to
have separate frames for each instance of the client and paint it with
some indicator where the two collide. Even if that weren't ugly, there's
little to be gained by this behavior. I'd consider it for Xinerama
support (but I've decided against it so far), but definately not for
"rows of columns". That is incredibly clumsy and altogether worthless in
my appraisal.
