The idea is basically stolen from Plan 9: all text should be snarfable
(selectable/copyable), plumbable and it should be editable where it seems fit.
Ideally, in wmii-4, everything you can do by keyboard shortcuts, you'll be
able to do with the keyboard and mouse (i.e. sans shortcuts), and you'll be
able to snarf/plumb any text in the wm. Editing of the tag bar will most
likely be handled by wmiirc through events, as will plumbing. The acme paper
( is a good place to start if you
want the 'philosiphy' behind it. (The plumbing paper, in the same directory,
wouldn't hurt either).
