Yes I thought of that option too, but in that case I would have to
re-parent it too a window that is off-screen,
and correct me if I'm wrong but i don't think that the app would get
any expose events, unless i sent them to it
with a client message, say every second or so. And therefore would the
window draw itself if it is off-screen?
I was just thinking if there was some nice built in feature in Compiz
or some plugin that could help me with this.
The other option would be to re-parent the windows under the cubes,
but that would hinder me from allowing the cubes
to have a opacity since you would see the apps through the cubes.
