Here's a few minor GUI issues that I noticed:

 o Do we want to set the initial positions on windows like in glade-2?
   Currently they appear anywhere, not really in useful positions.
   (Ideally we'd save window positions between sessions, but I don't
   think there is a standard way of doing that yet. Maybe later.)

IMHO the positions should not be hardcoded and if they do not appear in
useful positions I'd consider that a bug in the WM... in practice
however it may make sense.
To save the window positions all the other apps I know of use gconf, but
we currently do not depend on it.

If you decide to take a more active role in window positioning, please 
consider the behaviour of pane-based window managers (ratpoison,
ion, fvwm-partition, larswm trswm, wmi, evilwm); where the concept of a
position may not be honoured.

I would hazard a suggestion that in today's open-source world, a broken
window manager should be fixed, rather than compensated by
