You missed the post in December. :]

That sounds like some kind of window nick. It is a interesting idea,
and it could be independent of tabs too, for many other tasks, like
window switching.

It could be global, then themes can show title or nick. What I am
still trying to figure is why some people have aversion to themes
doing things like this (there are themes that never show the title,
that does not mean the wm erases all titles and never knows about
them, just that it does not show them).
