[FEATURE REQUEST]Selective tiling

I would really like the ability to, for instance, Ctrl select the windows in my taskbar - or some other simple way - and tell it to tile those windows on a monitor. Also the ability to have, say, IE configured so when it launches it docks at a certain size to a monitor, then the next IE tiles with it, and the more I open the smaller the IE's get as they adjust and tile. In my business we have anywhere from 5-20 chat windows running and 95% of the time I want to be able to view them all at once to interact with the bidding process but manually sizing and snapping each one becomes tiresome. I could even see defining some grid layout and when I drag windows to an indicator for that layout it would dock them in the grid positions and i could click that icon to see them all at once rather then clicking each one to bring it forward.

Does that description make sense?

Your description is excellent, I'm just trying to think of a good/easy to use way of including this functionality. Perhaps a HotKey that tiles all windows that are currently visible on a monitor?

MAYBE, just maybe, you can use the titlebar buttons as a indicator like is already done for always on top? So you hold ctrl+windows, then click, and a certain titlebar button would like up indicating that that window wants to be tiled. you can also click the button by itself to get it to light up. Maybe something like that?

@Kevin: Interesting idea, I've added it to my notes.
