Fun fact: i dont have too many tabs open 

I actually have stacks of too many tabs open.

In scrolling on status bar annoyingly changes workspace, easily fixed with

bar {
...your pre-existing things..
wheel_up_cmd nop
wheel_down_cmd nop

Hmm new idea: currently numpad keys with numlock sends me to workspaces.. And cycles through windows if the same workspace, imo significant improvement over the default.

What if rapid succession of two numpad keys does something different, like the second keydown selects the window.
