streamline.vim is a concise, minimal read of window data, and a set of maps to help you navigate.

streamline.vim is designed for multi-window tabs when editing routinely traverses more than three windows.

When, for example, Vim is in the lower left of a 9 window tab, and you want to go to a window in the middle far-right of the tab, relative jkl; etc navigation may offer no direct route, because the origin-destination windows are not adjacent.

Here, the fastest route is to navigate by the window number of the destination, its address.

Alternative approaches are just too much thinking, or are cumbersome, if one elects to chase a mouse.
