No, this doesn't solve it. The problem is this:

Window frame is at 30, 30.
Client window is at 38, 38.

Now, an external program can acquire the 38,38 with an
XTranslateCoordinates to the root window. But if they want to move the
window right 1 pixel, well, how do they get the 30, 30? This offset
would give them the offset of 8, 8, which they could use to do this.

If the external app could change the window's gravity to static, then
it would work, but changing other window's gravities isn't very nice. :)

I am damn unsatisfied to be killed in this way.
