comment Custom help / man -like command (for reminders)
Thanks @FaheemMitha - this, with me needing a specific nmcli usage, occurred like a year or more after the last event where I needed the same; I cannot imaging how big should I set the history file, so as to handle needs like this - and even if it was set to that, it would be still tedious to look up something you may have typed a year ago. But it could be an alternative for more frequent events; cheers!

comment Custom help / man -like command (for reminders)
Thanks @SamiLaine - was thinking about that; I am afraid of conflicting names of my text files vs. actual man pages; and then also, wanted to avoid thinking about which man section should these files belong to. But I guess this is as much of a built-in facility as it goes (also related: Where are man pages stored in Ubuntu? - Super User); cheers!

comment How do I proceed further when my reports of a improper functioning of a gnome component has not met with answers on the respective mailing list
Just a note; as of March 2014; the wiki.gnome.org/NetworkManager/Debugging returns "This page does not exist yet. You can create a new empty page, or use one of the page templates."

comment Multiple GUI windows in one (GUI applications windows multiplexer/wrapper)
Thanks @Gilles - never heard of Sawfish before, will make sure to check it out; but I am unwilling to make a switch at the moment (though surely at a later stage), which is why I thought an application would work great in the meantime.. Cheers!

comment Start window in specific size and location, is there a general tool can do that?
You could also start the application, and then use wmctrl to set window size (see also How to set window size and location of an application on screen via command line? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange); however, you need a window ID to wmctrl, and I'm not sure what is the best way to get it non-interactively.
