If you're just trying to automatically have the programs moved to a
specific tag, then you can change the window title using the terminal
emulator's hardstatus feature; set the terminal hardstatus line like so:

    printf "%s%s%s" "$(tput tsl)" "Music Player" "$(tput fsl)"

Then in your config.h under the window rules, you can add something like

    { "st", NULL, "Music Player", ... }

If you happen to be using screen or tmux, you may need to run the tput
commands with TERM explicitly set to st: "$(TERM=st-256color tput tsl)".
