In GNOME bug 152661 someone is asking for the ability to move in a particular direction from a given window (as opposed to from a given workspace). So you could move to the closest window to the right of the focussed window, for example. Apparently FVWM has this feature. (I assume this would be an unbound keybinding by default.)
I really don’t see why this feature would be useful to anyone. Would anyone care to try to justify its inclusion before I close the bug?
