Literally the main purpose - actually - the ONLY reason I ever restart DWM
lol, and for that, when doing some patching or just configuration editing
- It is super annoying to have to sort every window to it's place again.
Not a deal-breaker, but again - quite useful: saves time and patience..
If you think of the simplicity and SLOC - maybe you are right, maybe it
should not be merged.

Unfortunately for me - I am not as experienced as other users when it
comes to this.. I just wanted to shine some light on it's pro-s.


Hi Arda,

I like the idea, thanks for the work.
I'm not sure it really should be merged into the main repository though,
a Window Manager doesn't have the purpose of being restarted on the fly,
besides for debugging/testing purposes.

Maybe it would have a better place in the patches section?
