Yes I also came to that conclusion yesterday in the evening. I
already have a working dmenu package which will reside in a
separate repository. Currently I try to sanitize it somewhat,
but it will be very similiar to the dwm concepts. For wmii we
can think of removing wmiimenu from it as well, and have it as
separate app anyways.
