Allow min_width of a block in i3bar to be a string
Patch status: superseded
Patch by András Mohari
With this change, min_width can either be an integer (as usual), or a string. In the latter case, the width of the text given by min_width determines the minimum width of the block. This way one does not have to figure out a minimum width by trial and error, only to do it again every time the font is changed.
