tmux equal split vs. vim
Not sure I understand what you want.
If you start from
-------------------------
|...........|...........|
|...........|...........|
|...........|-----------|
|...........|.....|.....|

-------------------------
what would you want as result?
AFAIK, what *vim* would do is to make this:
-------------------------
|.......|...............|

-------------------------
i.e. equalize the width (resp. height) of the panes that aren't split vertically (resp. horizontally).
Is it what you want to achieve?
@atoponce

Yes. That is exactly it. The vertical splits are balanced, and the horizontal splits are balanced. Bingo!

I'm aware that I can do "^b :resize-pane -U 20", and the like, but I don't want to spend my day counting pixels to balance my windows. I just want a single shortcut that does it for me.
