I also like when my display looks like farmland when viewed from

rxvt-unicode does this in a simple way. Look for resources 'fading'
and 'fadeColor'.

Unfortunately, XGrabKey(board) generates FocusOut and FocusIn events.
If your mouse pointer is over window A, and you switch between
windows B and C, window A will briefly change its background color
like a visual bell (argh). The only workaround I can think of is to
park the pointer over the statusbar when not in use. :(
