If it is useful, I like to finish the patch. But then I need someone
to help me with how you are supposed to get an image of the windows
titlebar. Just like the code for opaque animations in effects.c, my
patch takes a snapshot of a part of the screen to animate with.
Problem is that if the titlebar is occluded snapshotting doesn't work.
I wonder if there is a way to get Metacity to render the titlebar into
a GdkPixbuf? If so, the patch would be easy to complete.

You might look at how the theme control panel and metacity-theme-viewer render the theme previews... that should make it fairly clear how to do it. You may need to go to a pixmap instead of pixbuf.
