For my purpose it works well with hg tip, I do not miss the title ..
I think this will be a neverending story.

I even don't miss the %u indicator at all and I seldom look at the
TILE/FLOAT indicator, because I use the tiled mode most of the time and
float a single client, if it is needed.
To indicate the status of a floating window I use an if/else construct
to change the border color. ARG gives me the hint to use the tenary
operator, but wouldn't use it in the official trunk.
So I'd like to share this little idea/patch .. perhaps anyone else might
find it useful.
The patch is based on hg tip (691 at the moment)
