 To avoid confusion - wmii has never used the term "dynamic mode". We
have managed modes (max/stack/default) and floating mode.
 As to your question, no. Title bars will be snarfable/editable in the
future, so we'd have to unimplement that feature anyway.

 Could be useful. There's probably a bunch more interesting stuff that
could be in the default wmiirc.

 This is because of OO's [mis]behaviour. It is doing something like
requesting a fixed geometry or not honouring resize requests or
somesuch, I'm not sure of the details.

 It causes wmii to exec whatever command you specify. Most practical
use is to fully restart wmii (not just wmiirc), though you could
probably use it to switch WMs on the fly.
