From my past experience CTwm window manager can allow you to specify
a window to appear on any combination of desktops (and modify that
selection using window properities, allowing external programs to move
windows around.

HOWEVER, also from experience, CTwm also stuffs up what desktop a window
appears on, especially in applications like FireFox which likes to move
itself to the current desktop automatically when given a remote URL
