    I frankly don't understand the intention of the patch. It's not like i'd accidentally move (or resize) windows very often.

    What might make sense is an apps key to suppress configure requests (ie. clients resizing their windows programatically), but the propsed patch just looks prone to cause false positively "frozen" windows...?

    maybe some kind of kiosk-mode? let users click but dont close or move the carefully crafted presentation ... ?

    One would probably just not define any moveresize triggering entries in ./keys in this case, yesno?
    This patch however aims to lock certain windows only, so I wonder whether this is ("just") because particular ones misbehave.
