Agreed.  That would be the default and most users won't care about such
an option.

Agreed as well.  But the options here could be to (1) just fail
restoring frames when they cannot be restored accurately, (2) try to
move them into the visible part of the screen (workarea), and (3) leave
the decision where to place them to the window manager making only sure
that they are large enough.  And we could start doing this after we get
the first bug report in this area (this means, hopefully, never).
