I currently implement this. The only difference is, that the tag
separator will be '+' instead of ' ', because otherwise we would
need to do really nasty things in the /event mainloop of wmiirc
to escape ' ' (which are recognized as argument separators)...


  echo -n select www+dev+irc | wmiir write /ctl

seems also more readable than

  echo -n select www dev irc | wmiir write /ctl


If one opens a new client on the specific page which is based
on a join of several tags this client will inherit the joined
tags, which has the effect that it appears in all joined tags as
well, I think such behavior would be most logically (though you
can just reset the tag on the fly to something different).
