[STUMP] Displaying a window as dialog

today I discovered wmjump ( It allows
to jump to a window by pressing a hotkey. This is nice, however since I
am a programmer and an experienced emacs user, I want to do something
like this using an emacs frame.

Is there a way to display an emacs frame as dialog?

The difference is, that show window properties uses type :NORMAL for
emacs frames and type :DIALOG for wmjump:

| class: Emacs
| instance: emacs
| type: :NORMAL
| role: 
| title: emacs

| class: wmjump
| instance: wmjump
| type: :DIALOG
| role: 
| title: wmjump

The following page explains _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE:

Is there a way to tell stumpwm to interpret an emacs window (with a
special title) as dialog?
Or is it possible to change the type of an already shown window somehow?
