Reading your mail, I thought I misread the code, but I just tested with
the new 5.3: urgent flag is cleared once the tag is viewed (being viewed
or switched to) even in monocle when the urgent window isn't visible.

Since I'm having trouble falling asleep, here's a (maybe too big :-S)
patch that adds border color, as you sent, and taskbar, as I promised
