As I already said on irc, I think having standardized screenshots makes
people believe those are part of the window.

I'd rather see no decorations at all or some randomized WM used for each
image, so people see the decorations have nothing to do with the window.
(Perhaps with some exception if some program uses some shade of green
that clash with twm's window titles or things like that).
