Sorry, I forgot to hit "reply all"...

As far as the Client side window decorations are concerned I read elseware
land/#comment-5018 that a custom compositor can draw its own decorations 
instead of the clients. If this is true, my question is how would clients know 
to not draw decorations on these compositors, to not get double titlebars? 
would it be a property flag that they can retrived?
