The description looks interesting indeed!
"A window-matching utility, inspired by Sawfish's "Matched Windows" option
and the lack of the functionality in Metacity. Metacity lacking window
matching is not a bad thing -- Metacity is a lean window manager, and
window matching does not have to be a window manager task."

"Devil's Pie can be configured to detect windows as they are created, and
match the window to a set of rules. If the window matches the rules, it can
perform a series of actions on that window. For example, I make all windows
created by X-Chat appear on all workspaces, and the main Gkrellm1 window
does not appear in the pager or task list. "

Sounds like it can do exaclt what I was looking for for both gkrellm and
gaim! I'll try it as soon as I can... now if only I could find a way to
drag windows across workspaces with a medium edge resistance... uh? What do
you mean by "dream on"!? ;-)
