Latest commit 53de872 Feb 11, 2016 @Arkq Arkq Mixed relative and absolute values for apps
Allow setting relative value for x and y or width and height separately in
the apps configuration file. This makes these settings compatible with ones
available in the keys file.

Previous buggy behavior:
If someone has specified, e.g. "[Dimensions] {50% 100}" it was parsed as
"{50% 100%}" not as "{50% 100px}" which was inconsistent with the "keys"
configuration file.

From now on it is possible to write something like this:
  [Position] (RIGHT) {50% 0}
  [Dimensions] {300 100%}
