I just wanted to follow up on this again. I had some time yesterday finally
to test out the new version of xfwm4 with the _NET_WM_FULLSCREEN_MONITORS
hint and I am really happy to report that it works beautifully both with the
test program I listed above and VMware Workstation, which uses the hint now

Thank you again, Olivier!!

Also, I'll be honest... I've never used xfwm4 before this, but I was VERY
pleasantly surprised at the speed and looks of xfwm4. And from cursory
looks, your code is nice and clean too. So, 1) thank you (again), and 2)
really nice job! I will have to spend some time playing more with xfwm4. =:)
