-This backports dwm's old behaviour found in pre-5.3 releases to read the status

+dwm releases before 5.3 read the status text from stdin.
+This patch is mainly a workaround for the freezing issue caused by

+Some people might like to write their status to a pipe, though.

+ statusbar to freeze. Interestingly, the [stdin](stdin) patch works around this.
