You mean you want it to always group?

Currently the options are 
a) never group
b) try to be clever

The algorithm for b is somewhat involved, and not quite finished.
Basically, it tries to give each button at least DEFAULT_GROUPING_LIMIT 
pixels, and if that is not possible it picks one group to group and tries 
again. picking which group to group next is done by a scoring function 
that gives a score for each group depending on factors such as:
* Number of windows in the group
* Number of windows in the group with the same title 
* Total abount of focused time (this is not implemented fully yet)

The final scoring function has not been tuned at all, and probably should.

Perhaps we should add a third option
c) Always group windows
