It'd be cool if we could rename clients. Assigning to doesn't seem to do anything (no errors, but name doesn't change). Is this possible?
This task depends upon

I looked into this and implemented out of curiosity the ability to set client names through But the problem with it is that file managers and terminals change their status bar titles all the time, so it's kinda pointless. It works on other clients though.
I made it for v3.4.10 and haven't tested other versions.
As I said, it's kinda pointless thing in my eyes, but you can try it out by patching and compiling and trying yourself.
