Many of these are not bugs, but limitations that are unlikely to
get fixed - the effort simply isnt worth the reward.  Patches are
welcome of course.

Undocked does not stay on top.  There are a number of states - if
"docked", it can either be docked or floating - both of these are
always on top.  If not "docked", it is a regular Window, and will
sit below other Windows correctly.

determining how many colours your system currently has and
responding appropriately.

This works for every one else :-)
