I think it's very little change in GTK+ as it's already able to do
both SSD and CSD (currently, decision to use CSD or SSD being made at
run time based on the availability of a compositor).

If you are modifying protocol between WM and application, would it be
possible to arrange "right click on title" event to windowmanager, so
that it can display its full menu?
