Tough luck... on Win32 you'll get exactly what you want, on X11 you're on mercy
of window manager. Depending on how much the window manager will consider the
style hints sent to him by the application you can either obtain all you want
or nothing at all. All in all, the results will be differ between (c)twm,
blackbox, kwm, gnustep and <type your favourite WM here>. That's probably one
of the reasons why programs such as Star Office do their window management
internally within a single X11 window.
