*Lots* of people ask for ways to specify what window something starts
up on.  It was pretty standard on "old fashioned" window managers and
is still there on most of their descendents like fvwm.

The requirement has come up several times over the years on the xfce
list and I've seen people asking for it in other places too.  It may
not be a *majority* requirement but it's hardly what I would call
