I recently learned about awk and rewrote all icon scripts which is what inspired me to record this episode.
Is it necessary to patch dwm? Probably not.
I've come to believe that the real value in these experiments has come from my custom status scripts and keyboard shortcuts - not from patching new features into dwm. It does what I need it to (manage windows!)

Might return to dwm
Enjoyed this episode which I began listening to and then switched over to the video version.
I used dwm as my main desktop many years ago, perhaps 8 or so, and it brought my rather underpowered laptop alive. In the end I abandoned dwm because I had to use netbeans everyday and for reasons I never understood it wouldn't work with dwm. I'm back with KDE again for now - yes, I like extremes! - but you've nudged me into giving down another whirl.
