That's true, but _STRUT_PARTIAL has many of the same difficulties as
_STRUT.  The property defines a rectangle that extends to the edge of
the root window -- there is no way to specify internal struts.  As I
said, I think that an extension to support this would be nice.

In metacity, implementing such a property based on the current code
would be quite trivial.  But as I've said, the property does not yet
exist -- it would require modifying the specification.
