I take it then that it is immpossible, otherwise u might have said something 
like "Because noone likes it, but here's how u do it if u feel u must...."

One of the main reasons I liked it was I have been running an automated part 
of a factory of a pc running Linux. As the programs I have written for the 
plant run in multiple consoles, and I am not the only one using the computer, 
I thought it might have been handy to be able to identify cascaded windows by 
a custom icon in the corner.
