Ok, so I'm trying to theme my desktop steampunk, I've done this once before but lost all of my progress (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=848956) now, I don't understand metacity at all. so here are some images that explain what I'm after. I'm literally leaving the house right now so if there's any ambiguity I'll clear it up when I get back.

There are several things that I want to do.
The first is extend the left and right corners into the centre title bar a bit. Another thing I wanted to do that doesn't look possible is localize the deformation to the left and right of a centrepiece.
At the very least I'd need the corner pieces to extend around twenty pixels in to the title bar. If this is impossible please let me know, I've spent a good three hours trying to edit various metacity themes to do this.

If it is impossible with metacity, is there another wm that can do it?

Thank you in advance for your help (or insight)
