If I read your proposal correct, the way that what you describe could be
fitted into my proposal, is to define all the windows you want to
organize as one Group, then apply a transformation on that group that
tiles them as you describe. 

I think it fits perfectly well into what Im saying, and shows that one
of the strengths of my proposal is that real things people want to do
with their windows is just a special case of what I describe. Its a good
sign that a system is general enough to enable such ideas as yours.
