Once time ago there was a patch to support transparent windows on dwm using
the X11 composite extensions. It was just 2 lines patch or so afaicr.

I think that opengl on desktops is cool and eyecandy but it's just useless.

I was thinking some while ago about using these X11 extensions into dwm to
add eyecandy animations like when zooming a client or putting semi-translucid
the clients not focused and similar things. But I dont feel productive with
these things.
