This patch will enable an extra status bar in dwm in a similar manner to the dualstatus patch. If the primary status is at the top via topbar then the extra status bar will be placed at the bottom and vice versa.

The status bar text can be set as follows:

xsetroot -name "top text;bottom text"

Support for an alternative delimiter is available and the delimiter can be changed by editing the statussep variable.

The text can be anchored to the left or right side of the screen by editing the extrabarright variable (20210209 diff only.)
