Something like this:
        Key $MODYEY-Control-g
                        for i in "'' grow" "Control- grow -1" "Shift- nudge"; do
                                eval "set -- $i"; mod=$1; cmd=$2; shift 2
                                cat 's/^ /' <<!
                                        Key Escape
                                        Key $mod-$LEFT
                                                wmiir xwrite /tag/sel/ctl $cmd sel sel left $*
                                        Key $mod-$RIGHT
                                                wmiir xwrite /tag/sel/ctl $cmd sel sel right $*
                                        Key $mod-$UP
                                                wmiir xwrite /tag/sel/ctl $cmd sel sel up $*
                                        Key $mod-$DOWN
                                                wmiir xwrite /tag/sel/ctl $cmd sel sel down $*
                        done | wi_events
                ) &

As the above is, of course, untested, I'd be stunned if it
worked without modification.

It's an incredible con job when you think of it, to believe something
now in exchange for life after death.  Even corporations with all
their reward systems don't try to make it posthumous.
