Hm... I'm not sure about that. The mode indicator should have a
different color than the tags, to avoid confusion. Giving the mode
indicator the same color as the status text area should fix that, but
then there's still the unclarity when the last tag is selected (since
it'll have the same color as the client title). If we're going to add
more colors anyway, I'd rather see it something like this:
with mode and clientitle (both in the statusbar and on clients) having
DEFBG, selected tags SELBG, unselected tags UNSELBG, and status text
