Latest commit 24e709a Nov 4, 2017 @tych0 tych0 ignore flake8 ambiguous name error
flake8 now complains:

./libqtile/xcbq.py:361:9: E741 ambiguous variable name 'l'
./libqtile/xcbq.py:497:13: E741 ambiguous variable name 'l'
./libqtile/xcbq.py:517:13: E741 ambiguous variable name 'l'
./libqtile/xcbq.py:535:9: E741 ambiguous variable name 'l'
./libqtile/sh.py:203:9: E741 ambiguous variable name 'l'
./libqtile/sh.py:204:9: E741 ambiguous variable name 'l'

IMHO, this is a dumb warning. People should just not use shitty fonts that
make these variable names ambiguous. Let's ignore it.
