I can understand that. But selecting actions from actions menu is very
comfortable. Especially those not so often used. I'm not insist on
scripts - only for action names in menu.

Beside that, I found that for me is more handy to have one shortcut
for locking and unlocking frames. I wrote script, that toggles lock
state of selected frame, and bind it to $MODKEY+u:

# toggle frame lock
lock=`{wmir read /wm/page/sel/mode/sel/locked}
wmir write /wm/page/sel/mode/sel/locked `{echo $"lock^' 1-_1*p'|dc}

I also create config, which make visual change for unlocked frames
(font/color). I use unlocking quite often at work (not so big screen
and huge number of terminals), so I wanted to know what happen to
newly created window. Unfortunately that config is unusable with
current snapshot, so - if any one interested - I post it after

Are meters gone forever?

Shortcuts for pages seems stop working in pager.

Anyway - good work.
