Global setting for displaying 'application icon' on Xfwm's titlebar

Some themes display the application icon, others don't.

For example: I like the Gelly theme, but it doesn't display the application icon.

Feature request: add a global 'Show application icon instead of the menu icon included with this theme' option...

Reproducible: Always

Problem is that the theme has to be made accordingly, that's why it's an option in the themerc only.

Putting the icon on top of a button that's not made for it will look ugly.

I noticed that, but what if this option replaces the button with an offset or transparent image the size of the application's icon or the origional button?

It's not all that simple, the button could be entire part of the decoration itself, the theme creator (I mean, the human being who designed the theme) could have designed the button on purpose.

I'm not sure such an option would make sense. It would be much efficient and give better results to tweak the theme to include the icon in a controlled (vs. automated) manner ;)
