[dev] dwm - filter dmenu input

I'd like to exclude certain things from dmenu.

I'm running dwm 5.6.1

I noticed that the output of "/usr/bin/dmenu_path" is piped into dmenu.

Is this the best place to filter out things that I don't want to see in dmenu?

For example, at the end of /usr/bin/dmenu_path, I could put
cat "$CACHE" | grep -v -f $HOME/exclude_these_from_dmenu
