AFAIK, metacity does not support it. Correct me if I'm wrong. It would
possible to make these effects of these using Compiz' wm but I have no
experience in this area and also compositing isn't currently working
almost nowhere in rawhide (you know, intel is broken a little, and
nvidia does not support the new Xorg yet).

I've replied on this one to you privately, but for others here's what I
it's not as easy said as done. Mostly because there are applets supposed
to be on panel, as well as notification area. Many of these are still
'broken' and display wrong if you use them on panel with different
background than just filled with one colour (non-transparent).
