I've said 'like in twm'. I don'n want the icon to be placed in a common
place, but in a place which depends on the window position (say, where
the 'Minimize' button is - no need to move a mouse).

Well, I ask to forgive me I had not read the man before asking. I really
see, that I can specify placement for my icons. I can even specify 'up to
four icon boxes' (how does it choose which to use?). But it does not seem
like what I need.
