That's a fabulous suggestion, perfect in its simplicity, and the only
problem is, I can't get it to work. :-(

Now, this might be because I'm using Mauricio Fernandez' ruby magic,
but I can't see how to add buttons to the _start_ of the bar, on the
left. This is, obviously, where I'd want them, so that
dynamically-created buttons appeared after them on the bar.

I can add buttons with something like:

wmiir create /bar/1.c
wmiir write /bar/1.c/data

but this creates a button to the right of the dynamically-created view
buttons, in the midst of my status bar "buttons", essentially.

Am I missing something here? Or is it actually impossible to create
buttons at the far left of the status bar?
