Re: [dwm] No Border Behaviour

I agree with Matthias. The purpose of a border is to separate one
client from another. If there is only one client visible at a given
time (i.e. monocle) then borders in my opinion are a waste of space.
So borders should be set to 0 whenever the layout is monocle,
regardless of the number of clients tagged under the selected tag(s).
