Dear Xorg mailing list,

I would like to make an application using Python, the GUI of which
should have reserved screen space (i.e. maximizing windows should not
overlap with it).
I have found how to do so using PyGtk, which follows the provided
standards (see
Now I would prefer not to use Gtk, but I have found no solution on the
Internet as to how I could reserve screen space for a given
application on Linux platforms.

Is there any generic way to achieve this using Python?

Could you please guide me?
