+1 for this!

I prefer "first-fit" placement mode. My primary head (right) has
gnome-panel on top and second head (left, sticky log/debugging windows
only) doesn't. First fit is on (0,0), second head.

My current workaround is to open log/debug windows first. Is there a
better way? Perhaps I should try to find some time to learn more lisp
to write first-fit-for-mouse-head-only.
