summary: Remember window position, or allow it to be configured

difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.

The ability to specify the precise position on the screen you want your PuTTY window to open at. This is clearly a very useful thing to have, but it would be just as useful for all the other Windows apps anyone uses. It shouldn't be the responsibility of every single program to include a configuration option to specify window position. Instead, it should be the responsibility of the Windows system itself, or a third-party program, to remember where you like individual programs to go.
One such program is WinSize (free, at least as in beer); another is ZMover (shareware); yet another is HandyThing (also shareware). If anyone knows of a free (as in speech) one, I'd like to hear about it.
