Thanks for posting it. The usecase in mind was to enhance st with a
scrollback buffer in which case the window border is just a useless
distraction. I think this is covered by the show_border changes.

However some people would like to hide all borders even when there
exist multiple windows.

I personally think this is too confusing. However moving the window
decorations out of the layouts would probably help with that ...
