Window Groups

Please let me know if there's a WM out there that already does this, but I would love to be able to hook windows together into window groups, enabling you to basically build a single application window out of lots of smaller application windows. You could then minimize or maximize this grouping as a single unit.

I think a good idea in a window manager would be to eliminate the need for resizing and repositioning windows by making the manager more intelligent, able to figure out such things for you.

they do tabs, i think he's talking about something like

-____________x
|gimp .|opera .|
|. . . . .|. . . . . |
|_____|______|
|.... . . . . . . . .|
| xffm . . . . . . .|
|____________|

all snapped together forming a single "window", i.e. a single set of close/minimize buttons controlling them.
