[Fvwm] Force EWMH window type

Is there a way in fvwm to force a window to be of EWMH type "dock"? I'd really like to use the (very limited) xcompmgr for composite effects with fvwm and the only option to exclude some windows from having shadows is excluding "docks".

Unfortunately, FvwmIconBar (which I use for my "taskbar") doesn't have an option to identify itself as a dock ... and it looks VERY awkward with a shadow. (same problem for FvwmPager and xdaliclock, the only dock elements behaving like I want are stalonetray and gkrellm)
