I use dwm the same way. An external script gives enough flexibility to
quickly adjust the executed commands.

Every other setting can just be changed by restarting dwm. The bad thing
about it is that all windows lose their tag, maximized state and
floating/tiled mode :-/ Instead of using Xresources, dwm could solve
this issue by saving the state in the window's Xproperty.
