Could you say what operations you are need to perform inside window
manager? I can't imagine now anything harder than replacing end of
string with '...' or concatenation.

You should do analysis first: what kind of operations your program
have to perform, and design your data structures then, not vice versa,
because you might be trying to optimize in wrong place (yes, we all,
as a software engineers, are pretty good known as being unable to
predict bottlenecks and performance characteristics of software).
