It will work with any windowmanager that supports the extended wm spec.

You might be able to do it with Gdk.Property.Get, but the gtk docs warn:

        The XGetWindowProperty() function that gdk_property_get() uses
        has a very confusing and complicated set of semantics.
        Unfortunately, gdk_property_get() makes the situation worse
        instead of better (the semantics should be considered
        undefined), and also prints warnings to stderr in cases where it
        should return a useful error to the program. You are advised to
        use XGetWindowProperty() directly until a replacement function
        for gdk_property_get() is provided.
