I need this on GNOME

Session Manager, must have a type multiple, environment save/load features.

Necessary features:

    1. Load & Save window postions, settings
   2. Special editing/scriptability constraints for passing command-line arguments
   3. Environments will load in a new workspace & create the applications in almost the same window spots, and files.
   4. Environment load/save of applications, will save a lot of time, for people who use a set of standard programs.
   5. Must include a GUI, with a GNOME menu-system included to DnD applications and make things easy & simple for user.
   6. Could be done in GTK#

Use case:

    1. Im regular user of GNU Octave, and emacs, firefox, xmms
   2. I dont like the present way window manager loads all these apps into same workspace.
   3. I cannot start all these applications all the time, its waste of time & energy
   4. I do editing to setup-environments many times over like a new env' for editing wikipedia, with GIMP, OO.o
   5. Now I want these things to be right there & right like that as I want it. As I leave it the last time.
   6. I would like to create my own soup of application environments, within a desktop environment
   7. GNOME would be a nice with its ability of look, see and manage this application of creating & editing meta-environments

I will add this to bugzilla, sometime soon.

Cheers Muthu
