I use shading to organize applications with many dialogs, like GIMP or 
sodipodi, and also for some windows that i want to look at once in a while 
during work, examples are log viewers, konsole windows with some specific 
command running in them.. 

I'd rather see window decorations designed with use rated over looks, since 
there are maximize buttons in them.

That said, I do realize that few people appreciate shading though.

Please no. The beep is there by tradition, and is a very usefull notification. 
Many users are hiding all the GUI of konsole, which makes the visual 
alternative redundant.
