Thank you for these improvements, they are definitly useful. I use MultiCpu
with the new -p option for a 4-cores CPU, and it works perfectly.

I hope it gets integrated in the official repository :)

Well I don't know if it's really important, but if .xmobarrc starts with an
empty line, I get the following error message:

xmobar: /home/galdor/.xmobarrc: configuration file contains errors at:
"Config" (line 1, column 1):
unexpected "\n"
expecting "Config"

Removing the empty line is a solution, but I wonder why the parser fails here.
