I shouldn't replace application window with it's icon_window.  My
C part needs to be rewritten.

I really doubt that such thin exists in "documentation" form.
There is libdockapp library (unmaintained, or in other words
"rock stable") and wmgeneral.c source that being copied from one
dockapp to another.

GNUstep doesn't have it's own window manager.  IIRC, blackbox can
handle something like dockapps, but I haven't seen it.

I think it's pretty well conforms to ICCCM specification, section
4.  Main window in WithdrawnState => ignored by WM, icon supplied
by client as window => display this window instead of pixmap.

Sawfish just doesn't have place to draw application icon.
