The status bar is just a bar in /rbar/ named status.

$ wmiir create /rbar/foo #000000 #ffffff #aaaaaa Foo
This command will create another bar on the right named foo. You now
have to fill it the same way you do with the status bar: echo stuff in

See attached file for an example. You can run it (in the background &)
from your wmiirc.
