Perhaps not really measurable on modern hardware. Anyways, the real
problem with unmapping those windows is that they then need to be set
to withdrawn state as well, which may result to some kind of a "pause"
logic in several X11 client apps, thus they can react a bit laggy
compared to the window move trick, apart from extra X events being
generated in various places.
