If a window shows up tagged with a tag which isn't viewed atm
one could consider to highlight such tag in some way (this was
done in wmi) but I'm not sure it is worth the effort, because it
would lead to several cornercases. I pretty much prefer using
apps which provide sane interfaces. The other way makes dwm too
