if the monitor struct had a char ntext[8] member then the layout
algorithm could set it (the layout struct would become a function

this way it's less configurable by the user (layout writer should get
the symbol right)

 static void
 fancylayout(Monitor *m) {
     snprintf(m->ntext, sizeof m->ntext, "[%.2f]=", m->mfact);

and the config would become

 static const void (*layouts[])(Monitor *) = {

not sure how useful this dynamic symbol is..
