Hi, i would like to bring to the table going forward a patch for dwl
itself called the bar patch, which is now upstreamed in dwl-patches
and aims to perfectly replicate the original dwm bar in suckless fasion
using fcft instead of pango and cairo.

I've noticed somebar uses C++, which is not suckless, and is opting to
replace software such as slstatus with harmful alternatives such as a
somebar equivalent called someblocks.

Which is why i would reccomend the usage of the bar patch, since somebar
does not offer features that make it acceptable to be a valid 
replacement,
and nor is it suckless - it is in [harmful] C++.

The bar patch is the simplest solution of all statusbars available, 
unlike
projects such as dwl-bar and somebar.
