I don't think we should bother. Session saving can't ever be perfect.
You won't ever get back things like your unsaved current documents,
undo buffers, network connections (chat), etc, and those are much more
interesting than the position of your windows (not that GNOME would or
could ever get that right even). I think this has always been a
half-baked misfeature.

For proper session saving/restoring there is suspend and hibernate.
