I understand ; I have just read Denis' email, which explains how
difficult it is. As a temporary solution, is it possible to have a
script to replace a set of letters in the bars?
, , => e
=> ss
=> o
... and so on.
How could I do that - not writing the replacement part ;), but
integrating the script to wmii. If wmii-4 is released next winter, it
would be cool to have decent titles for the coming months...
