I'm thinking that removing the "smart placement" could be a rather good 

As a user with a limited resolution (1024x768) I find that most times 
when I open an application I end up moving it to a new location anyways; 
because I need a specific part of the window to (not) overlap with a 
specific part of another window.

In other words, the desired area of overlap is frequently not the 
minimal overlap. If everything came up in the center, I could obviously 
anticipate where the border is going to be so I can then quickly move 
the window where I want it.
