Hi Phil,

I figured that was the case with Thus, all good. It works anyways. :)

The only thing i'll mention for while you're testing it is that
Alt+LeftArrow and Alt+RightArrow will tile windows to the left and
right respectively, and Alt+DownArrow will maximise again.

Once you tile a Window left or right it is floating and can then be
resized using the usual Alt+RightClick combo (or moved with usual
Alt+LeftClick), though the idea is users shouldn't have to do this
often (or even at all).

Other than that i'd hope it would be intuitive. Suggestions welcome
and appreciated.
