I'm wrong regarding xcompmgr's shadows.
The way they're made, they are better than, for example, KDE's ones.
See following examples:
xcompmgr without shadow:
xcompmgr with shadow:
kwin with shadow:
PS: something is disturbing here ... my test window use an ARGB32 visual
and is decorated with xcompmgr's shadow. So what's the purpose of the
initial proposal. Did i miss another thing ?
