I think that something quite close to this essentially what I've been
pondering suggesting.  I'm glad I'm not alone.  If Mikael and Dana are
receptive, I'll starting thinking about implementation spec details.

Considering how long the request for window-tiling has been out
though, this might not be a high-priority feature for the devs.  I'd
offer to code it, but I'm a TA plus a heavy grad-school load this
