  I file a bug (change request) about this. (#16440).
  Basically, GNUstep hard-code the window style offset
   (GSDisplayServer -styleoffset::::) for WindowMaker and metaciy (I guess).
  Actually, there are _NET_REQUEST_FRAME_EXTENTS and
  _NET_FRAME_EXTENTS for this purpose.
  (OpenBox doesn't support them, either)
  -styleoffset:::: need to pass on window information
  and becomes -styleoffset::::: (one more argument).
  Since -styleoffset:::: is used to talk between GUI and Backend,
  any change will affect all the backend.
  So I am not the right person to touch it. :)

  P.S. Metacity seems to support these two hints.
  It would be a good window manager for testing.
  I am not sure WindowMaker support these hints.
