Ah, I see, ok then at least it works as you described. Nice idea, still
not totally sure if it's better than listing all programs in $PATH, but probably
it is, you're right.

Ok, now with latest svn at least works, but not as expected. After
startup, I just have one 'work' workspace. When I make a new "workspace"
2 with winkey-t, I can switch between them with winkey1/2. But I was
used to get an empty "workspace" created when I press winkey2 and there
were just no clients yet. This makes more sense than to start an app and
move it to a new workspace afterwards.

Moving a client to a numbered tag with mod4+shift+number also does not
work, but that's probably due to your README entry of prefering tag
names to numbers :)

But great work within a day, now it seems much more polished, and really
ready for daily usage, thanks!

BTW: great idea to support mouse the mouse wheel on the bar and on
client frames! Also to kill a client with a right click was a much
missed feature I had configured in ion3 (actually I was used to middle
click to close but that can be changed easily in your wmiirc).
