But if there is room for improvement, why not trying at least? 

Yeah, sure, the current algo is "perfect" in the sense that it
guarantees that the overlap between visible windows is the lowest
possible, but after all, is that really suitable anyway?

I mean it, I'm sometimes lost searching for a window, while I could find
it instantly if it was mapped in the center.

Maybe we could just evaluate the idea before just rejecting it?
