Is it possible to group certain windows to always occupy the same area and always be in the same workspace? If so, how?

For example I'm using Eclipse and I have multiple detached windows and for some reason lots of times these windows get move between workspaces and moved around too. I would like to keep them all on workspace 1 for example.

devil's pie is a doing a great job with all the applications that I wanted except for Eclipse. I'm still working to see if I can tweak it to work. Thanks for the hint. –  slybloty Jun 4 '12 at 13:01
    
For me this also works with Eclipse (4.2.1) on Fedora 17 with Gnome 3. Great tool! –  Oben Sonne Jan 3 '13 at 16:32
