Excellent stuff. Thanks.

I still use viewall() - exactly once per wm session, to be precise.
Here is why: Just before I exit dwm, I happen to close all running
X-applications by hand. There might be programs with unsaved data (like
editors), filesystems which should be unmounted manually, open fifos,...
whatever. Some programs just don't behave very well when they receive
temination signals. To close everything quickly, I do viewall() and
select all those exit buttons or shortcuts one after the other without
having to change view.

So viewall() is of some help for me, despite the fact that there are now
those new indicators.

Did you know that if you play a Windows XP cd backwards, you
will hear the voice of Satan?
That's nothing! If you play it forward, it'll install Windows XP.
