I found some code on my harddisk, which I can send to you if you want

;;;; elisp for managing the wmii-3 window manager

;; by Phil Hagelberg

;;; Installation

;; Launch wmii your normal way through .xinitrc, .Xsession, or
;; whatever. Then set your wmiirc to just do "emacs -l
;; ~/.emacs.d/wmii.el" after it's done all the config stuff you
;; want. I have wmiirc set up stuff like shell variables ($PROGS_FILE)
;; so they can be exported, and then have it launch emacs.

However, the url isn't valid anymore.
