Actually, the mode area, the status text area and the 1px
separator between tags and client title share the same bg color.
This this is the case already without wasting 2 extra pixels ;)

Do what you like with them, there is FLOATSYMBOL/TILEDSYMBOL
now. Actually such symbols are pretty much dependend from the
font in use, # looks ugly with many fonts... I pushed ~/# as
default symbols, however, I personally use: "><" for floating
and "|=" for tiling...
