I'm working on the same patch, it works here with the latest version of gwd,
but has some issues which i'm trying to solve.

What doesn't work atm is:

* decoration goes blank if either minimize, maximize or close is missing. (menu works)

* the position of the action_menu doesn't get updated. i can place the icon anywhere,
   but the menu still pops up on the left.

* if i move a button to the left before the action_menu - blank again.
   after the menu it works. i guess this is related to position thing.

I'll post the patch if i can reslove those things, or maybe someone with more clue
beats me to it.
