I've always found it best when Windows are *smart* enough to pop up in the
most free space.

If my konsole is snapped to the top right corner, amarok hovering near the top
left, and I open Kopete I expect it to be in the free space in between them
and the edges of the screen. Simple, logical placement that can adjust it self
to your work space. Schema of having them auto pop up in a given area sucks,
they should use the free space available to minimise overlap between windows.

Just my two bytes.
