Yes, that's it. But I don't unserstand why this was merged. The status
bar has multiple text areas: tags, layout symbol, window name, status.
In the first three, the text content is padded. This change removes the
padding only for the status area. I disagree with that design decision,
IMHO it be padded, too. Was there a debate on this and rough consensus?
If so, I'd love an option, but that's not the suckless way, so someone
would need to maintain a patch.

If you upload your address book to "the cloud", I don't want to be in it.
