Description of problem:
Metacity is lean on features intentionally but there are two that I think are
highly important to usability:
(a) Stay on top. It's very helpful to keep certain small windows on top that
contain information, whether it be changing or static.
(b) Fit inbound. When a window gets bigger than the available desktop space and
the edges are off the screen or under the panel(s) it would be great to be able
to choose a command that brings all the edges back inbound isntead of creatively
finding and dragging the corners.
Not sure if these features are in there and I missed them, but I can't see them. ;-)

Steps to Reproduce:
stay on top keybinding is:
"fit inbound" is a workaround for bugs, if you have applications that
grow outside the bounds by themselves on a regular basis the right thing
to do would be to fix those apps, probably. I don't see this as a common operation
and don't think many users would find or use the feature.
But if you really wanted it, it could be implemented external to the window
manager, say using libwnck.
