Someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the intent of the
OP was to ask "Is there a configuration switch that one can throw to
see the X11 icons on the Windows frames?"  The answer to that is "no,
not that we know of."  If the question is instead "Can individual apps
be built and/or configured provide icons to be shown by the Windows
manager?", the answer is yes.  But these are vastly difference questions
with very different scopes and presumed levels of technical expertise.
