I haven’t got as far as creating windows with XCB, but I have dipped my
toes in XLib. It’s the same underlying X11 protocol after all.

In XLib I specified a window border width and a border pixel colour at
window creation time. The only window property I set was the title.
There is nothing else special I can see that I did, yet the window was
draggable and resizable and had the standard title-bar widgets.
