... well, in theory this sounded great to me. Now that I'm home and
actually looking at it, I'm ashamed that this was actually my idea.
The looks of this is all the justification needed for an extra two
(border) colors (the way the tagpart of the statusbar looks with these
strongly contrasting borders is just painful...). Sorry for this
And by the way, I believe that the current way of highlighting the
tags of a client isn't that great either (it's not obvious enough to
interpret in one glance, yet too obtrusive to completely ignore). This
"little box in one of the corners" idea mikshaw proposed looks better
to me (though I'll have to use it a bit longer to be sure). At least
it's clearer than the current situation.

Greetings, Sander.
