This is generally a bad idea, because (a) you get windows with different types of title bar; (b) you can only manipulate the window when the application's awake (ever used a Windows system where an application's crashed and you can't move its window out of the way?) and (c) you don't know about any extra features that the window manager provides (or requires in some situations). X11Amp did this and the authors got a lot of grief. My window manager, Window Maker, puts its own title bar on X11Amp windows and it looks very strange.

It sounds as if this is the wrong solution to your problem. What do you want to do?
