Sure. Well, you could have more than one X session running, sometimes I
do, or another user in the system. Also, for some systems I use a login
manager called qingy, and it loads an X session on the DISPLAY number 1
by default, so I can't assume that wmii will run on DISPLAY=:0.

Give it a shot, my guess is that it will fail on the second wmii call but
it will still work.
