Bug Description

We want to add better support for tiling in the ubuntu desktop, while we're looking forward to implement it in mutter natively, at the current state the best option we have is that of using an extension.

Tiling assistant is a well upstream-supported extension that is already in ubuntu universe (while MIR in progress at #2007710) and that provides more tiling features and an easier way to manage tiles.

We propose to keep the tiling assistant extension disabled by default, but available for being enabled (and tuned) from gnome-control-center.

In particular the extension allows to:
 - Do quarter-tiling of windows
 - Dispose tiles side-to-side and top-bottom
 - Select window to be tiled in empty slots
 - Organize tiles in windows groups that override focus behavior

I'm closing this bug since we ended up not doing this for Ubuntu 23.04. We are doing it for 23.10 now but we are not in Feature Freeze.
