This question is pretty self explanatory. I'd like to move
evil-mode-line-tag to the beginning of
mode-line-format. However, when I try my instinctive solution:
(setq-default mode-line-format (cons 'evil-mode-line-tag (delete 'evil-mode-line-tag mode-line-format)))
My changes seem to be reverted instantly. Why is this, and how can I achieve the effect I'm looking for?
