To my understanding, the tiling window style is supposed to take over the entire workspace area, and share (equally by default) the space with other windows, if any.

Based on that principle, I see the options:

  1. Joe's
  2. dedicate one workspace for the window

Anything fancier than that would call for a floating window manager instead...

There are a couple of ways.

mod+w will put all the windows into a set of tabs

mod+s will put all the windows into a stack

mod+e will put everything back
