There was a patch for it, but it never got merged. We want to make i3 display something more useful than "another container" by default.

OK. I was thinking double-clicking the tiitle with mouse and editing the label inplace would be awesome (not the wm). Obviously a keybinding should exist as well.

For those interested: The bugreport that led to the as-of-yet unmerged patch.
