I fear there is no simple solution unless Sun don't fixes the
JDK properly. Introducing frames for each client would mean much
more resource consumption of X, and the dwm codebase would get
more complex - one would need to change nearly all
resize-related stuff, manage() and unmanage(), besides extending
Client struct with Client->fwin.
