Those "decoration" bits are set to 1 (XWindowAttributesData.AWT_DECOR_ALL) to show all the decorations or 0 (XWindowAttributesData.AWT_DECOR_NONE) to ask the window manager (WM) not to decorate with anything, even borders or resize handles. With xawt.mwm_decor_title property set to "true", this commit adds the ability to set the bits to 2 (XWindowAttributesData.AWT_DECOR_BORDER), which some WMs take as "decorate with only a border", thus effectively removing the window's title bar, but still leaving the resize capability.
> This feature was tested and works correctly on "vanilla" Ubuntu 20.04 with the "GNOME Shell" window manager. It was also tested with Xfwm4 and KDE, where it did not have any effect; these two WMs have limited respected for the "decorations" bits of the _MOTIF_WM_HINTS window property.
Hello, thank you for your contribution, One initial question: what the name "mwm_" of this property actually means?
