Not sure who came up with claiming the stdin reader being a busy
loop. But the stdin reader has never been a busy loop in dwm, it
is select()-driven.

The point why you might notice high loads is not because of dwm,
it is because your input feed produces high load (most likely
because you are using a sleep 1 based shell loop with lots of
processes being involved).
