CLIM windows and xlib resources

Those of you using CLIM 1.1 under X Windows may be interested in this.
After making a frame but before calling clim:run-frame-top-level to
expose it, it is useful to perform the following operation on the frame:
(let ((xwin (slot-value (clim:frame-top-level-window frame) 'clim::window)))
(xlib:set-wm-class xwin "clim" "clim"))
1. The UNIX command xprop may finally be used to see that indeed it is
a clim window.
2. One may add lines to a resources file (such as .Xdefaults) to control
what the window manager does with clim windows:
3. Having a WM_CLASS attribute, it is easy to write standard XLIB
calls in C that do interesting things to CLIM windows. We have
one that changes the mouse cursor of clim windows to a wristwatch
during GC operations.
p.s. Can the CLIM developers add this in for the next release?
Done in CLIM 2.0
