I don't know of Matchbox...

Fluxbox, Openbox, and any others that allow you to position windows, etc.


The issue is that without the window role set, it is often impossible to 
distinguish between various windows in an application.

So I've updated my patch (which I will post shortly) to add some bits I 
missed and also setting the role for XCB.  Think I got all the 
windows/dialogs that make sense this time.
