Assuming you mean you can set a size by setting the terminal to 'custom
termina' and then giving it flags (--geometry=NNNxNNN+N+N) that's VERY
user-unfriendly I think.  It requires far too much knowledge from the
user.  An 'use this size as default' button would be much better (IMHO
of course).  Personally I don't want to lose the nautilus placement of
where terminals go, but I would like to start terminal with a larger
height width than default withouth having to remember the exact syntax
of --geometry :)

Is this something that a bug should be filed for?
