I know, but it's not automatic.

The readme says "It tries to bring to aero snap like features to 
openbox." Does this include full automatic tiling, ie I open or close a

If so, I'll try it with Xfce. The information on suggests 
that I can use Gtk themes and the Xfce panel even if I use the openbox WM.
