To complicate further i use client it two senses in the mail.

Client-side-windows means that gdk windows are client side (==app)
instead of server side (==xserver).

Metacity is also using gtk with client-side windows, however in my mail
I talk about client window in metacity frames, refering to the *other*
xserver clients toplevel windows that gets remapped into metacitys frame

Confusion, thats my middle name.
