Well there is a general usability principle called spatial orientation. The 
idea is that if you put something somewhere, it should remain there. this 
works very well for unique windows (ie property windows, bme, history 
window), but probably isn't as great for the main view window, since it 
isn't unique. I'll talk to marco about adding a save position flag to 
ephy-state to save position of only some windows. 

Here's a good link on spatial orientation and os9 finder.
