My issue was more so that the behaviour is inconsistent, sometimes it
does and sometimes it doesn't.

This is the behavior of the 20070516 snap... you can drag windows with
Mod+Left and drop them in between columns, or in between other windows
inside a column. This was also the source of the
"drag-below-statusbar" segfault.

I'd say let it wait for wmii-4. hg tip looks very stable and bugfree
right now... I would love to see it released.

Indeed, it's not bound in wmiirc, only rc.wmii.

Agreed... personally, having played around with Plan 9 recently, I'd
love to see them become even more acme-like. Not sure how others feel
about this.

One more small bug... Opera 9.5 seems to have trouble getting focus
unless I move the mouse over its title bar. It works fine under the
20070516 snap. Not a showstopper by any means though.
