I do it the other way:
I often select more than one tag. But I never tag a client to more

opinion you can remove toggletag instead of toggleview

I use the titlebar in conjunction with screen to let me inform about sth.
I don't think removing is a good idea.

What about removing reading from stdin and just execute a string
defined in config.h? This could also solve some issues if you cannot
use pipes. I don't know if it is smaller, but I could try to write a
