I could have sworn there was a way to do this as well, but perusing
the keyboard shortcuts and such I couldn't find what I thought I
remembered was there. Perhaps there's a gconf key to toggle this (I
looked but didn't see one)?
There might be a tool out there to add this functionality. Things
like Devils Pie and Super Switcher extend Metacity in similar ways.
Failing that, there are more customizable window managers you can use
in Gnome. In brief playing with Beryl, ISTR that it can do such a
thing. It's been ages since I used Enlightenment WM together with
Gnome, but it may well be capable of this also.
