This is made slightly easier with something like pentadactyl, dwb,
vimb or luakit. There, I'd simply hit "y" (or "yy" depending on the
browser). This would copy the url of the current page into the primary
selection. From there, I might script a solution to open "doc/toread"
in a {g,}vim window if this were a common occurance for me.

That being said - I'd still be interested in seeing/hearing about how
other people treat terminals in dwm. I tend to spawn / kill a lot of
them and I'm sure that's not the most efficient way of using them.
Tmux/Screen/Abduco/dvtm/whatever haven't gotten 100% absorbed into my
workflow either so I'm sure there's some answer involving them.
