Thanks. I also noticed that rumai has a work around one of my biggest
annoyances with wmii
(http://www.mail-archive.com/wmii@suckless.org/msg02221.html). Great.

Another minor annoyance. In wmii (latest hg version), the menu is called
using wimenu. When I type a few characters and press tab, it behaves like
left arrow key in dmenu. Rumani simply calls dmenu and tab completes the
current word. Any idea how wimenu is implmented? Can the choice of the
menu program be also made configurable?
