There's a neat side effect of dwm's method of rendering client labels.
 If you have X11 properly accelerated (DRI, Compositing, etc) and you
run xcompmgr -fc, not only do you get fancy drop shadows everywhere,
but the client labels fade in and out as you switch clients. :)

Also, running dmenu causes the top bar to fade from dwm to dmenu in a
very dramatic fashion. If you want to convince someone about
eyecandy, show them that, and they'll shut up. :)
