Do you envision any problems stemming from setting the same WM_CLASS
("r_x11", "R_x11") for rgl windows as used by x11() windows? I think
that most DEs are able to group windows by WM_CLASS in addition to
WM_HINTS.window_group (Xfce does that by default, GNOME turned out to
just need a hint in the .application file).
