Re: [dev] [dmenu] What is the status of the project?

A feature that would be a nice improvement would be to extend the behaviour
of the -f flag to not only grab the keyboard but also draw the window
already and start adding entries to the menu as they are received from

That way, we bring dmenu to the user at the instand t=0, even while a
extremely long list of items that would take long to reach EOF is sent to
dmenu (sometimes this happens for my dmenu_run script, which cats a history
file in addition to the list of executables).

I believe there was some mail at some point from someone that was trying to
do something like this, but I'm not sure how far did it went.
