This would be cool.  However, it would be tricky interaction between
the WM and aterm.  I don't think the term itself (correct me, Ethan or 
Sasha, if I am wrong) knows when it has focus or not.  This would then 
probably involve another X atom (or property) to tell which aterm had
focus so that it could re-mask the window.

Anyone else want to comment on it?
