I didn't say that every other WM does it, but many including openbox2
do, and I don't see why it shouldn't be possible. It just boils down to
personal preference, I want to be able to quickly drag a maximised window
off the edge of the screen and then drag it back later without having to
un-maximise and maybe resize first. The main characteristic of openbox 3
is extreme customisability, so I really don't understand why this
limitation of locking maximised windows was introduced.

If any developers are reading, could we at least have an option to
re-allow moving of maximised windows?
