Thanks for the suggestion, but it's not as pleasant as being able to
press my app launching shortcut keys (for urxvt, thunar, gvim) in DWM
on any selected window and have those apps launched in its working dir.

This patch affects DWM's program menu (dmenu_run) too, for more power.

Certainly the game is rigged.
Don't let that stop you; if you don't bet, you can't win.
