Answer: The only portable way to do this is with icon windows.  The WMShell
widget supports icon windows with its XmNiconWindow resource.  Set this to a
window  that your application has created.  The window could be the XtWindow()
of a realized shell widget.  The window must be created with the default
visual and colormap of its screen.  Other requirements on icon windows are
specified in section 4.1.9 of the X11R6 ICCCM.  Note that some window managers
provide alternate techniques for creating color icons; none of these are
standard or portable.
