DESCRIPTION
       smproxy allows X applications that do not support X11R6 session manage-
       ment to participate in an X11R6 session.

       In order for smproxy to act as a proxy for an X application, one of the
       following must be true:

       -   The   application   maps   a   top   level  window  containing  the
       WM_CLIENT_LEADER property.  This property provides  a  pointer  to  the
       client  leader window which contains the WM_CLASS, WM_NAME, WM_COMMAND,
       and WM_CLIENT_MACHINE properties.

       or ...

       - The application maps a top level window which does  not  contain  the
       WM_CLIENT_LEADER property.  However, this top level window contains the
       WM_CLASS, WM_NAME, WM_COMMAND, and WM_CLIENT_MACHINE properties.

       An application that support the WM_SAVE_YOURSELF protocol will  receive
       a  WM_SAVE_YOURSELF client message each time the session manager issues
       a checkpoint or shutdown.  This allows the application to  save  state.
       If  an application does not support the WM_SAVE_YOURSELF protocol, then
       the proxy will provide enough information to  the  session  manager  to
       restart  the  application  (using  WM_COMMAND),  but  no  state will be
       restored.
