Are you sure you have to involve the window manager? Can't it just be
done with `xprop`?

According to the ICCCM the window manager is in charge of the dekstop
(root window). Any machinations must be done through the window manager.

The ICCCM doesn't list a property for a client window's geometry.
It also states that a client shouldn't change it position or size.
I would assume that a client shouldn't change another client's position
or size.

So, unless I missed something, xprop doesn't help.
