I gave up on this approach for DWM and used dzen2 as my status bar

(Pictured at bottom of this screenshot:

dzen2 supports XBM and XPM images, which I use from sm4tik's icon set:

Finally, the SVN version of dzen2 supports clickable areas, so I get
nearly the same level of functionality as I did with WMII's statusbar.
For instance, all of my statusbar widgets refresh the entire statusbar
after their click handler has been executed.

This makes it feel responsive. For example, if I change the current
song using my MPD statusbar widget, I want to see the new song title
immediately, rather than waiting for the next update (at most, 30
seconds later).
