Any threaded mail reader will allow you to view any type of posting,
top or bottom, just fine. I am personally using gmail, which top posts
by default. In addition, threaded mail readers remove quoted text
(or collapse it), making it difficult to determine what everyone else
On to the topic at hand:

As for patching wmctrl, patch it for the common case... that is, add a
"--all" option or something to that effect to do a command to all
performing a command on ALL is alot more common than performing a
command on a list of windows, right?
shade all, hide all, show all.... etc
