this is possibly a cool idea, but it contradicts a little my
cleanup/tidyup idea, as described in the quoting above yours. I think
that a function (however implemented) brining back a pristine state of
dwm and the clients (rules reapplied, viewing only tag one, or some
other defafult (but default, not inherited)) is what I'd expect from a
tidyup function.

As to the minilanguage I also agree it should stay out.

What do you think?
