to implement a statusbar and have the text change when necessary. Right
now I'm using something like:

(defun statusbar-update (text)
 (format-wish "set text_statusbar {  ~a}" text))

(defun statusbar-clean ()
 (format-wish "set text_statusbar {}"))

Initially I thought I needed to pass a lisp variable to :textvariable and
it'd be mapped to the variable in -textvariable. Is that the wrong way
to approach it?
