Answer: Some window managers have features supporting this.  Mwm does not.
The ICCCM does not specify a standard protocol for using the feature.

Note:  some applications attempt to implement this by periodically popping
themselves to the top of the stack (perhaps in response to visibility change
events).  This is very poor practice and should be avoided.  If more than one
of a user's applications try this hack, the user will not be pleased.
