I haven't figured out how conky takes stdin. I can't find from the
documents anything about outputting stdin stream, there are no
variables[1] for that. I should have taken this to Conky's mailing
lists first, but as I recall someone used conky with xmonad well. I
couldn't find the post from archives, but maybe somebody pops up.
