Actually I pushed a different way, which feels best for me. This
one don't prints the tags of an unfocused client, but highlights
all tags of the focused client in the tag bar (with an inner
rectangle of the text color), see this for an example:

Actually if one needs to know which tags a specific client
contains, one only needs to focus it to see this. However, more
important is the client title (also to track progress), which
don't needs focus attention.

This decision seems straigh-forward to me, because one can only
change the tags of a client if it is focused, and this way, most
screen real estate is reserved for clients and status info
(actually the current way of highlighting the tags of a client
 don't wastes any pixel).

I also saved some LOC with this patch.
