That's.... quite a 'solution' and quite a claim.

Not with awesome 3.5.9, no. Sorry.

However, for the next major release we are working on changing this[0]. This
requires quite some changes, because all the code right now assumes that all
screens are already known when the config file is loaded and doesn't change

If you have some "frequent patter" for this, the only suggestion that I have is
to configure some more of these settings in your config. You can e.g. use
awful.tag.setmwfact(0.3, tags[1][3]) in your rc.lua to configure a "default"
mwfact for the third tag.
