Personally I don't use it.

To identify the windows (xterms are the only confusing) I use different background colors and fancy colorful prompts plus tag (or desktop) organization (per server and/or logged user and/or per project)

Sometimes I find hard (with high resolution) to know where is the focus, but I don't think the titlebar is useful for this (actually I don't use it because most of the times the title is 'xterm' because of my own xterm-organization pointed above)

Don't know any graphic solution for the focus problem. I'd rather prefer a shortcut key to force focusing the main window and the start moving around.

Just my 2 cents.
