Is it possible at all under X windows to have a non-rectangular window 
like under MS Windows?

The call under MS is AddRectToRgn(). Where you have a mask that is 
treated like chroma mixing, ie green screen, in movies/tv. Then the 
portions of the underlying desktop will show through and key presses in 
those areas will not go to the app, but to whatever is underneath it.

I know that xfornms does not support this. But, does anybody knoe of a 
way to do it using any other X frameworks?
