Okay, I figured out my confusion with the window in Lubos' original
TAKE_ACTIVITY proposal (the words "the respective client window"
appear twice and Lubos talks about both not allowing the window to be
changed and about requiring the window to be changed to the root
window; I think the apparent conflict is resolved by understanding
that the different requirements apply to different fields where those
words occurred).  I also think that I've figured out how to get rid of
the nasty status=3*action_type+event_type stuff (for some reason, I
was stuck on having[0] = _NET_WM_MOUSE_ACTION when I
believe that isn't necessary since xclient.message_type already has
that info).

So, I have attached two patches to the wm-spec.xml file.  The first is
closer to my current proof-of-concept implementation.  The second is
the same other than that it gets rid of the
status=3*action_type+event_type stuff that Lubos didn't like.  I have
incorporated Lubos' suggestion that toolkits and apps should be
allowed to use MOUSE_ACTION_MISC for all events and considers this
"basic" support--this will allow a simple patch such as what Lubos
already has for QT/KDE (and like what I created in my first attempt
for GTK+ before Owen told me he wanted the actions to be taken at the
GTK level instead of the GDK level).
