Nice, This looks great. I'd suggest to leave a blank pixel between all
conceptually different groups in the bar though, not just between tags
and title (after all, that would mean only two extra pixels: one
between mode and tags, and one between title and status). I think
that's conceptually more correct.

Btw. I noticed that you changed the tiled mode indicator from '=' to
'|'. To me, neither of those suggest 'tiling'; why not use the '#'
that was used before dwm-0.1? '~' looks like a wave, floating, and '#'
looks (with some imagination) like some tiled windows (at least i
looks more like it than '=' or '|').

Greetings, Sander.
