Some parts (visible tag part) of this seem to indeed be from my
personal branch of dwm (dwm-hiltjo). I'm not sure if you intended it
as an upstream patch, but most people probably won't like it in
upstream dwm. Note that drawsquare() is not only used for showing if a
tag is used by clients but also to indicate floating clients in the
titlebar so your patch removes that also. I personally don't like
hiding the border if there is only one client, it saves only a few
negligable pixels and makes the code a bit more complex and
inconsistent. If you didnt intended it as an upstream patch then all
is good :)

Kind regards,
