Yeah. That ascii art translated terribly.

But, fwiw, wmii has this capability. Not saying to keep up with that, but a co-worker uses wmii, and it seems really useful.

A stacking mode could also be nice. Like here on the right:

Only one window is fully shown, all the others are "stacked" with only their titlebars.

Yeah I agree, stacking mode would be really cool, and now that we have titlebars, also feasible. Just no idea, how it would work with them being off.
