/* Get the window-manager name (aka human-readable "title") for a given

 * 1. _NET_WM_STRING, which has type UTF8_STRING. This is preferred and

 * 2. WM_NAME, which has type COMPOUND_STRING or STRING. This is the old
 *    ICCCM way, which we fall back to in the absence of _NET_WM_STRING.
 *    In this case, we ask X to convert the value of the property to
 *    UTF-8 for us. N.b.: STRING is Latin-1 whatever the locale.
 *    COMPOUND_STRING is the most hideous abomination ever created.
 *    Thankfully we do not have to worry about any of this.
 * If UTF-8 conversion is not available (XFree86 < 4.0.2, or any older X
 * implementation), only WM_NAME will be checked, and, at least for
 * XFree86 and X.Org, it will only be returned if it has type STRING.
 * This is due to an inherent limitation in their implementation of
 * XFetchName. If you have a different X vendor, YMMV.
 * In all cases, this function asks X to allocate the returned string,
 * so it must be freed with XFree. */
