Dear Lazyweb: Shadows and Shaped Windows

I’ve been trying for a couple of days to figure out why a shaped window in Compiz doesn’t have a shadow. After looking through the Emerald and GTK+ decorators’ code, it seems that they only apply a shadow if the window has a titlebar decoration. This seems quite silly and limiting. Does anybody know of a way around this, or why we’re limited in such a way? Is this something that could be fixed?
