Yes, change the code. I personally don't like the idea of 25 strcmp's (or
possibly regex matchings) every time you move the mouse into a window, but
maybe that's just me. Thinking about it for 3 seconds though, you could
match the string when the window is managed and set a boolean in the
client struct and just check that, good luck.
