... agreed! so much more usable tiled.

I happen to have enough vertical resolution to use only one pane for
tools. I'm using the same setup as sereven's config [1] basically:

gimp     = reflectHoriz $ 
           named "Gimp" $ 
           withIM (11/64) (Role "gimp-toolbox") $ 
           ResizableTall 2 (1/118) (11/20) [5/4,5/4,5/4]

This uses IM, Named and Reflect.
