Well e 0.16.5 supported the remember feature, and I would assume
something similar or better will make it in to .17, but what I was
asking for is a bit different. Although I would want to be able to be
"remembered" for future sessions, I simply want to be able to have a
window fixed in a position and moving it or affecting it would required
For example, you have an Eterm window open, you "lock" it into
position. 2 hours later, you are dragging some porn around the desktop
and inadvertantly click on the titlebar of said Eterm, but because it's
locked, you don't accidentally drag it off into oblivion.
I suppose you could "lock" all sorts of attributes, such as size, but
not location, etc. Sort of an extended "sticky" feature set.
