I'd like to walk windows by direction (up/down/left/right) rather than next/previous. This would probably best be implemented as a set of uicb calls such as client_focus{up,down,left,right}.

Oh, that would be awesome! I was used to that behavior from ion, wmii and all other tiling window managers i used before.
