Hmm, I see. I'd be useful to get a bit more control over the window
layout than just that. 

One thing that might be nice if the tiles can be split at arbitrary
points. One possibility is for example so say that if I start a new
application, the tile of the currently active window will be split into
two, one for the old window and one for the new. If you can then vary
the ratios of all these splits, you get a very fine control over your
window layout.
