[openbox] Remember window-settings?

Just out of curiosity, exactly what are the windowmanagers tasks; what's 
windowmanager-specific, and when does it cross over the line and become 
a task for `a full featured desktop environment'?

Icons on the desktop etc., /that/ belongs to a `full featured desktop 
environment' or some such, or so I've understood it. But remembering 
/window/-geometry and -position seems to me to be something related to, 
and only to, /windows/, hence I thought that it might be the 
/window/managers task to control this?

Seems like Devil's Pie could be the thing I was looking for though, so 
thanks to all who've mentioned it (and wmctrl)!
