I personally didn't think this is worthy of a patch, but some people
actually find it useful.

Issue is that by default when using dwm with compositing window
manager (xcompmgr, picom) whenever client (most often it is terminal)
has transparent background it's borders also become transparent.

This is not what people expect or want and hence the need to fix that.
One possible solution is to use alpha patch. But some people don't
know that it fixes the issue (description of alpha patch only says
about adding opacity to statusbar), and others find it an overkill or
have difficulty applying the patch.

In the end all that is needed is just one line of code. I don't know
wheter it should become part of mainline or a patch.
