window captions

I have a question.

Some window managers (including kwm) unify window captions. If the user opens
three xterms, she will end up with "xterm", xterm <2>" and "xterm <3>".

For well understandable reasons, any taskbar, pager or windowlist should
enumerate the windows exactly in the same way. But how? I don't think a window
manager is or shall be allowed to modify the WM_NAME propery directly (possible
race conditions), so kwm used another property for that.

What are you guys doing to solve the problem?
