Grouping seems to be achieved by setting the window_group component of
the WM_HINTS property of the window:


ICCCM goes on to say that "The window group leader may be a window that
exists only for that purpose <...> [not] mapped either by the client or
by the window manager".

Is that enough of a direction? I have only ever written X11 code using
xcb, not Xlib, but I could try to help further if needed.

Best regards,
