Where can I change the | character used as separator in the i3bar?

There does not seem to be a configuration option and I can not find place in the code where it is set.

I've found another question regarding separator, but output.c:print_separator does'nt even exists!

The file output.c can be found in the src directory of the i3status source code. But it does not seem to be an actual pipe symbol when using the i3bar output format, as print_separator returns without actually printing anything.

Looking at i3bar/src/xcb.c:refresh_statusline in the i3 code it seems that it is actually a drawn rectangle.
