That's trivially satisfied by eg. a DirectFB "window manager". :)

I guess you mean that it has no dependency on any specific windowing
system or backend, in which case...

Window management functionality is way beyond the scope of the backend
interface in GNUstep. Trying to abstract out window management functions
from different windowing systems would just lead to a huge mess;
windowing systems are too dissimilar. Thus, although it'd be possible in
theory, I think it's a bad idea.
