Except it is very unusual for a program running in a graphical
environment to not have *any* titlebar, and would look like a
deficiency in Emacs.  Using a "basic" one (i.e. twm, aewm, etc,
maybe even windowmaker or fvwm) would make the website look

Using e.g. GNOME for the screenshots serves the same purpose as
the fact that GNOME itself has default themes with high-color
icons and gradients - it signals that it is part of a modern,
user-friendly system.

I think the "lowest" type of window frame that should be
considered is WindowMaker, with a theme that actually has
gradients rather than flat colors.
