no, it's just as "windows" are handled by the window-manager
real windows (with borders) are equal, but some (without borders) are more
equal than others...
btw, i do not see much sense in having this.
using no borders is most likely for full-screen or similar (somehow
"performance" mode). Maybe your patches should work by then without too
much switching between windows ;-)

no, not possible too.
you can just create one single openGL-context (i hope i do not say
something very stupid).
Programs with multiple openGL-windows (like 3dmax) have 1 context that is
devided into various subwindows -- the same happens with gem in stereo 1
so you could emulate 2 subwindows with this stereo-mode (and with *very*
queer eye-settings)
