spiral :: Rational -> SpiralWithDir aSource

A spiral layout. The parameter controls the size ratio between successive windows in the spiral. Sensible values range from 0 up to the aspect ratio of your monitor (often 4/3).

By default, the spiral is counterclockwise, starting to the east. See also spiralWithDir.

spiralWithDir :: Direction -> Rotation -> Rational -> SpiralWithDir aSource

Create a spiral layout, specifying the starting cardinal direction, the spiral direction (clockwise or counterclockwise), and the size ratio.
