I added something to my wmiirc for this broke when moving to 3.6.

I'm not sure if your a fan of python but.. I've been using wmii for just
over a year now with the standard wmiirc bash interface.
I recently switched to using python-wmii.

Among other improvements, It maintains a history of views that you can
cycle through with MODKEY-minus and MODKEY-plus.
This is slightly more bloaty (because its using python) but I find
extending and modifying my interaction with wmii MUCH easier and enjoyable.

*Note* I did modify a few of the default keybindings in python-wmii to
be similar to the default wmii. I also added some new ones.

statusbar/lbar stuff is also written in python and the whole thing seems
a lot cleaner. I also believe wmiirc is slightly negliected because
most of the main developers use rc.wmii dude to liking plan9's syntax
and using plan9port.

I recommend python-wmii to any wmii user with a small amount of python
experience. Much thanks to Rico Schiekel for his work.
