I think it's a pretty useful feature to have.  Drop-shadows are relatively
new in the X11 world, and I don't think there's any kind of consensus as
to how the shadows should look, or what most people will find pleasing.

An option in the GUI may not be the way to go, but I think having hidden
prefs for something like this is a must, at least for now.
