I also have mixed feelings... I wrote it because I didn't see urgent
windows when they were visible (I know this sentence looks stupid, I
know, but you get it), and since the implementation resulted simpler I
decided to post it here.
There is another middle-way solution which you could be interested in:
move the clearurgent() call to focus(), like in my patch, but forget
about the urgent border color (which is what makes the patch uglier).
This way, you could save some loc while getting the functionality of
notifying urgent clients in viewed tags. If you have no time or
whatever I can modify my patch and send it to the list tomorrow.
OTOH, I will probably maintain the patch for the border color, at
least for the moment. But I won't post it here or anything if nobody
else is interested.
