Well, if you want to do it automatically, there are a few
possibilities. The first is to find the window's class name and
add a tag rule. It might be a bit tricky in this case, but I'd
do something like opening a terminal, and running:

     sleep 4; xprop | grep CLASS

then running gnome-do, waiting for the crosshairs, and clicking it.
If the result were (say):

     WM_CLASS(STRING) = "gnome-do", "Gnome-Do"

you'd add this to your /tagrules (from your wmiirc):

     /^gnome-do:Gnome-Do/ -> /./

(see wmii(1) for more info).

The alternative is to try wihack (which needs a man page) as such:

     wihack -tags /./ gnome-do

But, as the name suggests, it's a hack, so it might not work.

I think maybe for the next release, I'll write a script to automate
such things. It seems so complicated to describe.
