reason for using XConfigureWindow in restack() is setting border_width
of client (and this is the only reason for not using XMoveResizeWindow
as you propose).

XLowerWindow was used in past, but it makes windows flickering in
monocle layout, as windows are pushed to the bottom of the stack.
Solution currently in use prevent flickering.
