On X11 systems, windows generally provide information about themselves
to the system. These include things like the window title, window
class, window role, and window type. These allow window managers to
properly handle the windows, and in some window managers (like KDE's
kwin), lets you set rules for windows of certain types.
As best as I can tell, by default matplotlib does not provide most of
this information. It provides the window title and the window type,
but it doesn't seem to provide the window class or the window role.
These two properties, however, are exactly the properties someone
would want to use when trying to set up rules for particular windows.
This makes it impossible to set window-specific rules for the plots.
Is there something in the matplotlib configuration that would let
someone set these properties, and if not is there any way matplotlib
could set them itself?
I'm sorry if this is a common question.
