A start at adding "tiling inside quadrants" to dmg-quadrants.jl

I have a barely working attempt at making my tiling idea work. It still needs some hooks to rearrange the tiling when a window is closed or moved, so it isn't terribly functional yet.

I tacked on an extra option to the items in the dmg-quadrants variable. "none" means it works just like it always did. "vertical" tiles windows vertically inside the quadrant, "horizontal" is not implemented.

If a quadrant is marked "vertical," the first window pushed into the quadrant will occupy the whole quadrant. When a second window is pushed into the quadrant, each window will be resized to half the height of the quadrant and positioned appropriately.

After watching it working properly, I had a new thought. I'm thinking maybe instead of having picking and choosing which quadrants to tile that there should be a function that tiles the windows in an existing quadrant.

I through a temporary copy of my work in progress up on my web server:


Again, it isn't very usable right now. It really only demonstrates the thought I am chasing after.
