Without going through the wm-spec-list archives, I think that would have
been the main point of the thread there (mentioned in those metacity
bugs). What Havoc ultimately wants is richer metadata between apps and
the WM in order to do this properly for apps that can't accept what
functionality WMs can provide today.

Regardless, I don't think Epiphany can be considered to fall into that
category. It's not Nautilus, and window positions are unlikely to be
needed on a per-bookmark basis. Certainly won't work if the current
implementation of keeping them in a couple of GConf keys isn't changed
to something way larger.

I agree with Marco that for the short term, something like what we have
now is ok, until metacity has the window placement support. However, it
should only remember size, not position, for the main browser window, as
right now multiple windows open right on top of each other, which
totally sucks. The other windows aren't opened multiple times, so
remembering position as well should be ok.
