- for n clients, you'd have to pull & update & possibly resolve
  conflicts n times instead of just once

- you'd need to keep a local copy of the dwm sources on every host,
  which means that you'd need to keep local changes in sync on all
  hosts and that you can't share these machine independent files

You don't have to. If you don't modify at all, the default
config file is used.

Cheers, Jukka

P.S.: I attached the patch which slightly changed in the meantime,
just to make sure we're talking about the same changes...
