  Description     : taskbar for the ratpoison window manager

The 'default' way to switch windows in Ratpoison is to press C-t-w to
get the window list, find the number of the window you want to switch
to (let's say it's 2), and press C-t-2 to switch. rpbar is a simple
taskbar that gives a permanent display of the windows in the current
group in order to make the first C-t-w unnecesary. As a concession to
The Rat, clicking on a window title will select that window. This is
useful for one-handed window selection.

The main inspiration is the simple task bars you get in other
minimalistic window managers such as Awesome or wmii. rpbar's
appearance is modeled on these task bars.
