Let me add that if you do not need the flexibility of a tiling layout
you could just use the approach of SimpleFloat: you can use
"windowArrangeAll", above a layout like SimpleFloat.

That would be far simpler: put the first window there, the second
there, etc.: that is to say, get the number of windows and decide
where to place the focused one - the last one to be created.


ps: as you may understand in ion3 I used to use only the floating and
the tabbed layouts... I didn't appreciate it for is tiling capability,
if you want.
