Yes. Do not expect that the X11 binding will be changed to add this;
that's the wrong place to put it.

And then there's the correct one: extend the *user* of this function, in
ManageHelpers, to also do the WM_CLIENT_LEADER check.
Modifying a low level X11 binding to do something the bound library does
not, namely adding WM_CLIENT_LEADER to a function which is documented to
only do WM_TRANSIENT_FOR, is the wrong place to put this.
