There is none.  I believe Ben had a good justification for this, but I
cannot remember it.

So I guess the options you have available to you are:

1) Modify your window management habits.
2) Hack the source.
3) Use ob2 or another WM.

Good luck with your endeavours, and if you do make a patch, be sure to
publicise it on this list.

Your good friend,
