Often, issues arise when applying multiple patches. The prposal doesn't
solve this, does it? For single features -- sure, it's beneficial, but the
work to keep stuff up to date with master remains.

Set of branches based on multiple patches, representing different dmenu
flavours -- like surf-flavour (e.g. vertical and token match and xyz ),
dwm-flavour, someones-music-player-flavour -- might make more sense... not
