	Ah - this might be to help with systems that don't have a window
manager in the same way that desktop systems do.

	Perhaps in the above situations; eg. we have a 'close' icon in our
menu-bar already for closing documents when you can use the WM
decoration instead - though the semantics are a bit different.

	IIRC on netbooks we try to full-screen a lot of windows, so it'd be
useful there I guess. Dezsi - did you have a screenshot of the new
window with that included ?
