 wmctrl -- Shade, move, resize windows from a shell

"From the "why didn't I know about this before now?" file: this evening I discovered the wmctrl tool. With this you can access all of the Extended Window Manager Hints functions of your windows from the command line. What does this mean? Imagine hitting a key sequence and a specific window moves, and resizes to a certain section of your desktop. Hit another button and it shades, no matter what window has focus. I'll get into how to unlock all of this potential below."
