AW: Placing on desktops (was: Theme patriation)

Exactly, I don't want it to rememember the last used vDesk because I don't think that would be very helpful (at least not for me). My software would just pop up on random virtual desktops because I have no specific rule which app to use on which vDesk. I just move windows randomly to different vDesks when my screen becomes a mess. So, I think an application should always start on the virtual desktop which has the focus at the moment, except I told it to start on a different place.

I apologise if I'm misunderstanding; I thought from what you said you 
wanted the WM to remember which desktop it had last placed an 
application's windows on.  In that case we would still be using window 
matching.  If you just want to specify which window an app appears on 
every time it starts up, that wouldn't involve window matching.

(Was this supposed to go to the list?)

I think most languages sound a little odd the first time you hear them :)
