Great. I will check it out soon, perhaps this weekend. I'm hip
deep in Blu-ray stuff ATM.

I don't think I quite understand. I'm not sure what window you
mean in "... its window top left corner is placed ...". But maybe
it doesn't matter that I don't understand. IIRC, when I full-screen
an existing window it goes to the screen that contains the upper
left corner of the existing window.
For new full-screen windows, would it be possible to pick the
screen that the mouse cursor is in? I think this is what KDE-3,
(and perhaps others) did. I think I could sometimes click the
full-screen button on one screen and move the mouse quickly so
the new window opens in the other screen (On KDE). I'm very
accustomed to being able to open new full-screen windows on
either screen so always opening them on the left screen seems
a little broken.

Wait 'til you see my feature requests! :-)
