Why must windows be quadrilaterals? When I have mplayer in the upper right corner of the screen, I want Firefox to take up the other three quadrants. Sure, it will mess up a lot of layouts designed for quadrilaterals, but if I want it to flow that way, whose to tell me no? X? Gnome? Firefox?

X does support non-rectangular windows (or, rectangular windows with transparent areas, at least; e.g. xeyes), so I think you have only Firefox to blame. And maybe the HTML and CSS specifications.

The correct solution to your problem is to add more screens.

That would be insufficient. I can already put a window on each quadrant of my screen, but I want three of them to be different parts of the same window.
