Yes. I did this but I get nothing at all, ie

$ wmiir -a 'unix!/tmp/ns.foster.:1/wmii' read /event

gives nothing, no matter how I pound on the keyboard. For a sanity

$ wmiir -a 'unix!/tmp/ns.foster.:1/wmii' create /bar/anewlabel

does the expected thing and creates a new label.

Fair enough. I just didn't want to get used to those features in wmii-3
which have been removed already ;) I'll use wmii-3.1 until a nice snap
comes out.
