I'll check.

.  .. It looks like that flippers are auto-enabled as soon as the file is beeing loaded.

There are some scripts which filter windows, so I guess it shouldn't be too hard to do.
The only thing is wether those are placed on the right viewport again.

for the placed-by-direction thingy... Is the list of window-matcher-values filterable?
If so we could simply re-place them on match.

Easiest would be for maximized windows.

As far as I can see that is all only needed when the screen size increases, but not if it decreases.

Perhaps we should save old resolution as old-screen-width and old-screen-height?

We might do a list like

 (class (viewport . position)))


 ("gimp/GIMP" ((1,0) . (north-west))

 (restore-viewport move-window-to-viewport (class . viewport))
 (restore-position move-window-to (class . position))

 ;; eg north-west = 0,0
(case position 
 (north-west (0, 0))

or would this be too hard to implement?
I guess it's finally time to read some more rep documentation XD

On the other hand.... how often do you change your screen-size?
Or the other way round... would be that rather huge function desirable for a seldom-used screen-resize?

I'm not sure here.
