Nice.  I'm currently on the 2nd option as documented in a post a few
days again, but there's very little difference; in fact it could well
be worth me switching to the emacsclient approach as there are a few
minor issues with using xmacro.

You lost me there.  .emacs is only run at startup, after which the
window manager can do anything it wants with the positioning and
visibility of the frames - or was that your point?

Right.  I'm using -c as well.

If it's the -c you don't like, you can always dump the commands in a
script.  That's nice because it gives you more breathing space to do
things like error checking on the exit code of the wmctrl.
