Can we set the color of an Apps title bar?

Nope, they can be on screen just fine.  To do a quick test, create a stack,
create a substack. In the main stack put:

on resumeStack
   set the backgroundcolor of this card to "red"
   pass resumestack
end resumeStack

on suspendStack
   set the backgroundColor of this card to empty
   pass suspendstack
end suspendStack


Then click back and forth. Whichever stack you have at front will turn red.
If you choose a different program entirely, both will turn white. The
exception to this, I think do to the way the IDE works is that if you select
an IDE stack (for example the script editor) then start clicking back adn
forth, its possible to get both stacks red untill things sort themselves
out. This shouldn't occur in a standalone.

Obviously making the whole stack red might be a little garish, but is a
quick easy example so you can see how it works.
