Is this planned functionality? When working with this xsm setup I used Xfwm4 as the window manager. Things worked ok for Xfce4 programs but others exhibit this problem as they aren't session aware.

Which brings up a question. Will there ever be similar functionality such as version 3 where you can define window options. IE, no title or sticky etc?
