True. Float groups are useful at times. Personally, I think most of the
time using float groups can be avoided by nice placement rules, but then
I am too lazy to generate placement rules...

I have had the very same discussion with Shawn on IRC, too. My personal
problem with the current model is that one cannot create a frame that
spans across two outputs. If I remember correctly, the result of the
discussion was that multihead support is a hard problem for a tiling
window manager and if someone wants to fundamentally change the way it
works, he should hack it himself. ;)
