No problem, as this patch is what I actually use for my stuff it's no
problem posting updated versions to the list for anyone
interested as new dwm versions come out.

Just to be clear: the one thing that it would be useful for my
patches (and perhaps others' patches) to have in dwm would be a function like


which can be called once something else has fiddled with the tags (and
occurs at end of tag() and toggletag() in main distribution). If it's in the
main distribution then any changes to drawing logic don't need to
be detected and copied into any out-of-tree patches that modify tags but
will be picked up automatically.
