It doesn't look to me like that's what it was about. It looks to me like
Sadrul's fix is what it was about. It says things about moving existing
windows via the "number" command; there's nothing on that report
regarding where new "screen" windows are placed.

I have to say that I'd be rather disinclined to add this feature.
However, when scripting support is available (or if you'd like to try
Sadrul's lua patch), such a thing should be implementable by the user.
