I did something similar without .Xresources. I have several
keybindings that call shell scripts from ~/.scripts. Some output to a
fifo to dwm's status bar, and some output directly to x, but either
way, these scripts were the first thing I did to circumvent the
inflexibility of compiled-in keybindings. I just edit the shell
scripts, and the keybinding works differently as I want to change it.
