Funny that, I was searching for something like that endlessly. Didn't find it, 
obviously :-)

Why's that? I mean, it is obvious, it is supported by an important X Vendor, 
it is small, non-intrusive, and above all, it works. They have done such a 
great job with introducing/supporting "windows"-ish features on X, I wonder 
where the problem is.

I didn't notice that. I am just innocently building Qt+KDE via Gentoo, and due 
to bad connectivity I am still running rc3, so I can't tell if it's in there 
or not. At least it wasn't me who committed it - I prefer to stay in the 
world of my small subdir which I maintain, that's all :-)
