Amusing anecodotes about "fixing apps" aside, we would like such a hint
for Wine - right now mapping Win32 style bits to MWM/NETWM/X hints is a
major pain. The heuristics sometimes get it wrong, leading to things
like "Help I started Steam and can't enter my login name!" because
override-redirect windows can't take focus. If we could tell the WM to do
exactly what we needed, OR windows would be less necessary and things
would get more reliable.

Actually there are a few things we need from the EWMH spec it doesn't
provide right now :)
