Yes, there needs to be some kind of 'intelligent' algorithtm for selecting window groups. There should be also a mechanism of memorizing window's geometry. There are some windows which i'd like to see where I left them ;)
I'm not sure if this should be client-side or window-manager-side. Probably the second, to remove hacks present in some applications.
