Yeah, there're various examples for them. But it doesn't seem
essential for me.  If some WM "tiles" several windows,
i.e. automatically, then the only starting point seems to make them
identical in shape. But for users, there's no reason to be so.

For me, one feature of tiling WM seems to be not to leave the
background. Gpsy exactly offers that.

Tiling fans may be glad to have commands which simultaneously moves
adjacent borders, i.e. "resizing which respects packed state" to gpsy
