I used to have a script to do the same. M-g toggled gkrellm to/from the
current view, moved it to the far right, and resized its column, but I
never really used it. Nevertheless, there is currently no way to resize
clients from the FS. For 3.6, there will be ways change column width,
managed client height, and floating client size/position. But it will
also be possible to leave empty space on either side of the screen, and
it will respect the borderless MWM hints of clients such as gkrellm. A
large part of this is already done in the -test branch, and I intend to
add some simple heuristics to better support dock apps. But none of it
is available yet (except for the parts that are done in the -test
