Martin, please hear my request:

Instead of telling us how great KDE's infrastructure and community is
compared to ours, please give us information that can further our
development, such as bugs and code snippets. For instance, you have
not told us how our code can move in the direction that could possibly
bring us into compat with KWin.

For example:

>In the case you want them to have window decorations, yes override redirect
does not work.

is a good one because it clearly points out a flaw that can be fixed.
