That would break the spatial metaphor. The idea is that the folder is a
solid object, including its geometrical properties. Basically, a folder
always shows up where you last used it. This means that the UI is
self-learing when it comes to window positioning. It adapts to your
usage patterns.

If course, for previously unvisited folders we *could* do something
special (atm we just let metacity place it).
