Sidestepping the holy-war topic here, I'd like to point out that there
are plenty of status bars out there like tint2 and dzen2 that you
could use. I've even heard of people using DWM in conjunction with
xfce-panel. A patch to add the same functionality that one of these
examples already does very well would likely be huge and pointless to
write. Don't reinvent the wheel and all that.
