There seems to be no common way for this in CLIM. But the following little
Symbolics hack does this stuff for you.

(defun change-screen-deexposed-coloring (&optional (set-on nil))
  "Turn background window graying ON or OFF - only needed for genera"
  (if set-on 
      (tv:set-screen-deexposed-gray (eval (second tv:*gray-arrays*)))
      (tv:set-screen-deexposed-gray nil)))
