Specify Window Positions

If you have the “Combined Application Window” preference unchecked (meaning you are using separate windows), is it possible to give one or more of the windows an “always on top” setting?

For example, could the chat window be positioned above a portion of the map window and then always remain on top even when the map window was being used?

Or is there another way to reposition the chat window and the various toolbars so that they appear on the side of the map window rather than at the top?

Some window managers let you set windows to be Always on Top.

Apparently there is a method in the JDK that claims to do it, but I’ve seen conflicting reports about how reliable it is:
