I complain. Please don't remove this from the main branch. At least not
the title bars. Having to patch every release of dwm with a possibly
not-up-to-date titlebar patch will be a big nuisance for at least half
of the users here.. How about a small config #define and a little more
code to maintain for the rest of us?

Another argument is that the title bars sometimes contain useful
information that convenient to have visible at most times (without
having to activate the window).

Since you're saying dwm is finished I don't see any real value in
changing this again... Or maybe I should just stay on 3.0 from now on..

As the nmaster indicator -- come on, is it more than 0.5 LOC? I think it
should stay.
