I too disagree. I think the !! is more readable and idiomatic (either
way, at least we aren't casting to bool...). But I am curious, does
the compiler still generate a branch for the ternary? How does the
code compare for the 3 cases? I'll play around with that later.

That being said, isurgent is being used in the traditional boolean
sense where 0 is false and non 0 is true. As such there is no need to
do either. Just having

    c->isurgent = wmh->flags & XUrgencyHint;

is fine.
