This is related to the fact, that wmii scans existing windows
earlier than you might be able to xwrite /ws/tag. "1" is the
internal fallback if /ws/tag has not been written to anything
else. Because /ws/tag is the only case which has impact on
execution time and order of the fs interface, I think about
adding an argument to wmiiwm to set /ws/tag from .xinitrc.

See the other mail by ality and his patch.
