For whatever it's worth (which is not much since I don't contribute much of
anything to this community anyway), I hardly touch the mouse and wouldn't
even notice if mouse functionality was removed from the bar. I do like
having the bar managed by DWM though. The fewer external programs I have
to bring in to remain functional the better.
