Applied. There doesn't, in fact, seem to be much reason to keep the UseWindowMakerIcons default now anyway.  Perhaps I'll remove it if I ever have a chance to test the other effects on the backend.

Sorry that I didn't explain too much.
The main purpose is to expose the window used by application icon so that other window manager may be able to support GNUstep-style application icon (IconWindowHint)
The icon (pixmap) is less useful here, but I figure it won't hurt.
We are trying to have a window manager and dock to support GNUstep better.
But a lot of "features" are only exposed to WindowMaker,
which make it difficult to have another window manager work good with GNUstep.

Sorry, I don't quite get the purpose of this patch. What is the intended result? And is there a way to determine which window managers will support this behaviour?
We already have different level of icon support build into GNUstep for different window managers, this may get screwed up if we enable something WindowMaker specific for all window managers.

Here is a patch to expose icon window for other window manager besides WindowMaker. It gives other window manager a chance to work better with GNUstep. I tests it with WindowMaker, Metacity and Azalea.

And can someone take a look at the patch in bug #17787 ?
