IMHO the positions should not be hardcoded and if they do not appear in

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.

glade should not depend on gconf.  Havoc explicitly states that gconf
should not be used for state information like window positioning.  In a
lock down environment the keys may not even be writable.  State
information should be kept in a file, which is what epiphany does, and
what screem does.

Hmm... a lockdown environment must specify which keys it is going to
override. It depends on the application supporting that, I guess, so
there's no real problem in here.

I like gconf, but if it is a problem in windows, then I see a reason
to not use it only for this and, thus, use a rcfile.

If that's a consensus I can try to write a patch providing this feature
as this is something that has been bothered me for a while.
