The case that the OP mentioned seemed like a case where both the old and the
new behaviors are acceptable, with no clear favorite.  So I think we may as
well leave the code alone.
Unless I misunderstood or overlooked a detail, of course.

I'm experimenting with a feature that marks some frames as "balanced" such
that any window-creation/deletion or frame resizing causes the windows to be
rebalanced with balance-windows or balance-windows-area.  In such
a situation, whether "| a | b |" is split as "|a|c| b |" or as "| a |c|b|"
doesn't matter that much, since that'll be rebalanced to something visually
identical anyway.
