But I want to manage all the windows of that application and *only*
the windows of that application. And, as far as I'm aware, there's no
reliable way of figuring out the pid of the process that owns a given
window. Does _NET_WM_PID work reliably enough to be useful?
Writing a fusion plugin is a great idea, and I'll look into it, but I
don't think it solves that problem.
