Right. I might clarify myself a bit: when I was talking about edges, I
specifically meaant beginning from the corner and tiling them from there

The button approach seems nice. OTOH, autodocking on location would make
it simple to start programs in the dock: xfoo -geometry +0+0
But then again, ... sheesh. I like to keep a clock in the lower right
corner and I have to always make it sticky by hand. If someone had a
solution to THAT and maybe lose-the-decorations-mode, I'd be one happy camper.

But this is all talk and no code, so this is getting a bit pointless.
