Window decorations

Currently, window decorations (title bar, resize bar, stuff like that)
is handled by the windowing system GNUstep is running on. However, for
some backends (eg. most rds-based stuff) it makes more sense to let
GNUstep draw them itself, and in that case, it makes sense to let
NSWindow handle it. That way we'll get consistent look and behavior on
all such backends (and it makes implementing them a lot easier :).

So, would it be ok to implement optional window decoration handling in
NSWindow? A new method in GSDisplayServer could tell NSWindow whether it
should handle window decorations itself, or if it should use the current
methods to set the style/title/etc. on the windows.

(In fact, this could be a useful feature under X too. Currently,
localized window titles often show up as '*':s since the window manager
doesn't get the unicode title (and probably couldn't display it
