you won't be keeping wm[2x]'s feature of right-clicking to rotate focus
through the window list, regarless of where the focus currently lies.  I
never use this feature anyhow, so count me in on the "don't care" list.

Now that you've told me the single-plane resize tabs are there, I'll be
using them on a regular basis.  Somehow I never noticed that feature
before, but I'm sure it will come in handy now.  Thanks :)  So why would
you want to get rid of that?  How else were you planning on indicating
which window has the focus?
