I don't know what kind of system you run, but on my machine, the
frequency with which new windows get mapped is way less than 0.1Hz. I
don't think a few (even a few hundred) string matches play a big role
there. Think of things like dmenu with ~10 000 items piped in. It has to
do a lot more string compares than your window manager with however
fancy matching you desire and it still performs quite nicely (I'm not
sure how it performs on an 8MB 486).
