The bar should be internal to prevent adding bunch of
synchronization complexity to not overlap the bar all the
time... Also, I doubt the sense of having a bar with a 9P
interface as external app, that would add also much complexity
which seems totally unnecessary. The bar-(re)internalization was
the correct decision. larswm, ion3, *box and many other WMs
using a bar prove that.

1) Agreed.
2) Is already there through tagging, thus nothing new.
