I'd like to add one more thing..

At least for me (can't keep track with my patching things, should be
standard with wmx-6) shaped windows have absolutely no window
decorations of any kind so it's impossible to move them.

Just realized that this patch removes the problem, since by hitting your
ALT or WINDOWS or whatever key and dragging the window with mouse there
really is no need for decorations anymore so you can still move things
like xeyes. Any use for something like window resize the same way with
Button2 or something ?
