Well, suppose I have 5 page in 'oldweb' tag and 1 page in 'web' tag, to
bring up page which I want, I need:
 * switch to oldweb
 * _visually_ found page
 * tag it to web
 * switch to web again
 * tag unneeded page to oldweb

Maybe I miss simple way of uzbl handling, but that's what I came up.
It's painful. Although I happy with tagging concept and use it
successfully for terminals and other things, but web don't work well
with me in such way.

If uzbl could handle Vim-like buffers it could be a little bit shorter:
 * :ls
 * find page by URL
 * :<number> (for example)

Third way is to make first way automatic: make a collection of windows
for certain tags, select one through dmenu, oldweb-tag current, and
web-tag selected. But dwm have to be told somehow to send list of
oldweb-tagged windows, to tag and untag certain windows. (And I really
don't want to throw away dwm, although I think wmii has such
