The patch also makes it impossible to see which tags the focused
client is tagged with. That's a pretty big drop in usability imo. I
would rather dwm only displayed the visible tags, and that would clear
up some confusion wrt how tags work, but I'd prefer it if the current
focused client's tags were signified with a filled square, and other
visible clients with an empty square. The squares would have a
slightly different meaning (invisible clients would just result in the
tag's being shown), but I think that would work well.
