I've had to checkout 3.6 just to find this. No, in 3.6 it's not
possible. You can do something like this:

   wmiir read /tag/sel/index | grep -q "^~ $client" ||
       wmiir xwrite /tag/sel/ctl send $client toggle

As for a package, OpenBSD supports binary packages and it's easy
to keep around a local copy. It's also easy enough to just keep
around a port makefile, on FreeBSD, at least. 3.9 will be out
soon, anyway.
