The file format, as it stands now, is:

  <window class="XTerm" name="xterm" title="/foo/bar" role="blah" type="normal" num="0" updated="1039026079">
    <geometry x="100" y="100" width="200" height="200" gravity="NorthWestGravity"/>
  <window save_id="Some String" updated="1039026093">

Obviously, if this were to be cross-WM, the top level tag:
"metacity_history" should be "window_history" or simply "history".  I
have very little opinion about /where/ the file should be stored.
