We already have code that should be doing exactly this in place in
XGServerWindow.m, starting line 3152. Most likely I did get the
specification wrong and it isn't sufficient to send a message, we also

already do this.

Anybody willing to write a patch for this?
Some simple XChangeProperty() with add and remove should be enough.
