I think for tablet pcs, there must be a less suckish onscreen keyboard
with some extensions which allow integration with dwm, wether as patch
of dwm.c (which would be the easiest since it doesnt require any
additional communication between dwm and a some kind of a input event
client) or as external app using some x property to communicate with

In a first attempt this should be a patch however.
