I feel that the only thing wmiimenu and dmenu are missing is a
prompt option. This option would let you specify a string that is
displayed before the input-area (just like the -p option for the
/usr/bin/read program).

For example,

  $ echo ant bear cat | wmiimenu -p "what's your name?"

  # and then on my screen, I would see something like:

  what's your name? ________________ [ant] [bear] [cat]

This ability would enable people to make better interactive scripts
(like how mfp's ruby-wmii uses wmiimenu to manage bookmarks).

Thanks for your consideration.
