That was not what I intended with my post. I already know about that.

The questions are more:

  What do you think about the concept of crash-only software?


  What about removing the running flag from dwm and replacing quit()
  with kill(pid)?

Probably dwm is not the most relevant program to become crash-only
software, but I think it's worth a thought.
