Each sub window of gentoo should have his own window title string,
for example

Gentoo - Username - Main
Gentoo - Username - Configure
Gentoo - Username - Configure - Pick a Font

With that gentoo can be integrated with a customized fine tuned window
managing environment using custom scripts (for example written for
devilspie).

    I'm not sure that I agree ... gentoo already tries to use the GTK+-supported way of expressing that a window is a child window of another window (using gdk_window_set_group() and gtk_window_set_transient_for()), and I think that should be enough. Encoding this kind of information in the window title seems ... A bit kludgy. I'm closing this, consider it a WontFix.
