I wanted to say *whatever* you find strange, but thanks anyway :)

You're right. My question was vague. What I wanted to ask was: to
where to maximize after restart, if ID is on?

I think the coder has the right to choose the easy implementation, but
it's true that care, if not big, has to be taken for this issue.

But this may not be a problem. ID users don't maximize, I guess,
because it is not useful at all under ID.

Yeah. At the same time, we need to polish the incorporation. It is
covered in my message on 18 Jul. (I've done nothing in this
topic since then. Sorry. But I've learned a bit of sawfish.gtk.widgets,
so implementation of radio button is possible, *after* news rewritement.)
