Funny you should mention that.  I've just been playing around with
implementing these today.  My approach is to use _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE,
and set it to a new value, _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DRAWER.  It's just a fun
little hack I've been playing with.  If there's interest, I can post it
somewhere when it works.
