	No!  Don't make the mistake of a frameless menu window!  The menu
window needs to be decorated so it can be moved and closed.  There is
nothing more annoying than a torn off menu that yu can't do anything with.
(Better hope your window manager lets you move and close things
somehow...)  PLEASE don't think about frameless windows.

 If you love something, write it in C; if it compiles, it is yours; 
                     if it doesn't, it never was.
