Sawfish can do it (more precisely, librep + rep-gtk), but currently
none has done it. Practically it's not a bad idea at all to use other 
programs. If I remember correctly gxmessage is a dialox box and can
exectute program at button press, too. 

I use similar one, hand-written by me. When I try to exit Sawfish, but
some windows are open, then it asks confirmation, excluding
sawfish-pager and so on.

I'll send later on how to control Sawfish from shell.

Literally. If you execute the script, not immediately, but seemingly
when you do a window operation, Sawfish crashes.
