oh, i do this all the time. i keep the programs that i use a lot maximised (each
on its own desktop) and it happens all the time that i want another program
(often but not always a utility of some sort) to remain visible even if i focus
the maximised window behind it.

skype would be a typical example, but also something like a character map or a
text editor that contains some notes. or an mp3 player, an xterm with showing
some log file, etc. etc.
