I haven't looked closely at `waffle_window_create2` code and how it 

I do know that it's possible to get WS_CAPTION windows larger than the 
desktop if one handles the WM_GETMINMAXINFO message, like done in 

However this trick doesn't work for tiny WS_CAPTION windows, not matter 
how much I tried.

There is a more comprehensive solution though: make the OpenGL drawable 
a child window instead of the top window, so that even if the parent 
can't become tiny due to the title bar, the child window (hence the 
OpenGL drawble) can be as tiny as we want.

I haven't implemented this on apitrace yet, but that is my hope.
