The idea is, iirc, new windows will get master :

master:   [ A                                    [ X
          , B        --> open  a new window -->  , A
          , C ]                                  , B
                                                 , C ]

just a matter of binding to insertDown and focusUp, instead of vice
versa, if you want the other behavour.
