Re: feature request: grouping two tiled windows

Have you tried a middle clic on the window top bar ?
It will bring this window below the others, and you'll see your tile windows.

That indeed makes much sense to me, I've already be bitten by this.

I think this feature might even go into the core design instead of into
an extension: that's the optimal behavior for all users. I'd suggest you
ping the designers on #gnome-shell list (ask for mccann, aday or jimmac)
to see what they think, and file a bug if they are OK. (I'll try to ask
them too if I'm around at the right hours.)
