I don't know if the code has changed or I don't remember very well,
but I think that you write the title and then the status message right
aligned, so having an status message (provided by dzen or whatever) in
the upper right corner and expanded to the left would be enough. The
only change I would propose is that when there is no status message in
stdin you don't have anything (instead of dwm-ver), but I don't see
the point of limiting the bar width, maybe I'm missing something...
