I share the view that it should be the WM doing tabbing and possibly
tiling as well. Some time ago, I took the time and tried out most of
these "alternative" WMs. Ion is good but I didn't like the fact it tiles
everything. Also, it is for keyboard junkies only.
The WM of my choice is still larswm, although it does not do any tabbing
at all. However, its automatic tiling is a priceless feature for me
WMI ("the vi among the WMs") looks most promising but it is not fully
usable yet. The author has just announced aome paradignm changes on the
ML. But it is worth to have a look:
Did you know that if you play a Windows XP cd backwards, you
will hear the voice of Satan?
That's nothing! If you play it forward, it'll install Windows XP.
