Cried hurray too quickly.  MultiToggle seems to operate on entire layouts.  If I
have, say, 4 windows on a decorated layout, what I'd like to do is leave 3 of
them decorated, while removing the decoration from only one of the windows.  By
"decoration", I don't mean borders.  I mean the title bar added by
NoFrillsDecoration and similar layout modifiers.
