The compiz plugin that is currently still active but in part disabled
allows finer tiling by repeatedly pressing Ctrl+Alt+[Numpad-Key] e.g.
[9] for upper right corner.
So you could tile up to 6 windows with flexible width.

The middle row doesn't work currently, which would be vertically
maximised windows (5 being maximising or narrow centered)
