No, as I said, it is specified for _NET_WM_DESKTOP, which means that it is
possible to
map a window and have it appear on all desktops. But it is not possible to
map it initially
on desk 1, say, and then make it appear on all desktops (well, you could
withdraw and 
map again), since _NET_WM_CURRENT_DESKTOP only allows to move to an
individual desktop,
not to the special value #FFFFFFFF. 

Does this make my question clearer ? Should there be a way to make a mapped
window appear
on all desktops by sending a client message ?
