Unfortunately even if true this 5 line expressed idea, does nothing more
than to express your frustration with the fact that it doesn't work at
the moment as you would expect it to. As much as I'd like it to see it
working this won't happen overnight and even more it won't happen with
just expressing general ideas as above. It needs someone with enough
insight to put up a clear specification of what exactly needs to be done
to make this true, so we can start to code it.
And most certainly starting a new window manager as a replacement won't
make those specifications we need come out of the nowhere.
But if you think that doing so it would be better and you have enough
time to invest in this new project rather than enhancing one already
halfway made, be my quest.
