Hey Jazman,

  Your study is quite exhaustive and illustrates why the root window is
not used by many desktops: it is easier to use the full screen window.

I coincide with your guess that Olivier will not want the popup menu
within xfwm4. But maybe, just maybe, he will not frown upon the ability
of xfwm4 to load plugins. 

A plugin capable wm would be code-independent from any popup menu code,
and might be able to handle more plugins, like a minimized icons or a
ROX pinboard plugin. The success of the panel's plugin design has a lot
to say.
