I apologize for the two topics in one day.

Is it possible to make it so you can group windows together, so that if you move one window you can set other windows to follow it, or have the parent/child window(s) follow it. Say you have two documents open, one window-snapped next to the other, and you want to move it to the other monitor, you can just set them to be grouped via a titlebar button and/or the window menu, and then you can just drag the first document and the second will follow. That or with, like, instant messaging conversations if you have them one next to the other and you want to move them all as a whole. Also, make it so you can group two specific window classes together at startup, so you can have the two windows sized and positioned in the options when they start up, and then have them already grouped. It'd make things like document work, emails, anything that needs copy/pasting a lot easier, instead of juggling windows around. Also, if you can set it to group with the parent/child windows, it'd be really nice for instant messengers, browser extensions, etc.

That would be a really nice feature, If i am not mistaken I think someone had already requested this addition.
