that's how i call dwm:

while true
  echo `/bin/date '+%x %H:%M:%S'` `uptime | sed 's/.*://; s/,//g'`
  sleep 1
done | dwm

but let's say that when you M-S-l the POV turns to only display tag 1
(or maybe tag 0), then after the next M-S-l tag 2 (resp. 1) and so on.
and at the end there _is_ an order of the tags - i.e. the order in the
code, no matter how you call the tags (by number or by string).

ok, maybe you consider that another feature with too much additional
code, then i will accept that (what else should i do? ;) but i _did_ use
that way to flip through the tags
