On the other hand, if you use Sawfish as your window manager
you can tell it to remember sizes, positions, stickyness and/or
layering for any window (identified by title, etc).
For example, I've Sawfish set up so that any gnome-terminal titled
'Mail' is sticky (i.e. when I change workspace, it follows me).
Play around in the Sawfish configuration stuff. You may need to
turn on Advanced or Expert mode.
