No worries about the time to implement. As you might guess,
it took me awhile to get around to using it.

I'm using this for a terminal window and have found resizing
is a bit buggy, and the window needs to be one column less
than maximized horizontally (at bottom of screen) for the
application to work. Other than that though, it works great
and is precisely what I needed. It has greatly simplified
my life using WMII.
