Great! IMHO now is more elegant... and more minimal too. :-)

Very useful feature, especially for ELinks and cmus.

Yes, now it builds without any warnings or errors.

IMHO it will be less comfortable, the MOD() approach is very easy, and
more dwm-ish. Give a look to window(1), you can find it on a NetBSD
system, it has got a command mode, and it's less usable and comfortable than
dvtm, IMO.

I (re)installed it right now, and I see that it is more stable and also
complete, the window title feature make it a complete WM, ops TWM:
Terminal Window Manager! :-)

Ciao, Leonardo
