BTW, I just found the kde-native ...
... utility, on kde-apps.org. (FWIW, I happened across a package
maintenance note for it in gentoo's kde overlay, where I read the the git
whatchanged log every time I update.)
This command line tool allows user scripting of the running window
manager (any EWMH-compatible window manager, including KDE's KWin,
GNOME's Metacity, Compiz and others).
It can be also used as a replacement for the wmctrl tool, which no longer
seem to be maintained. It also provides more features than just directly
mapping to the window manager specifications and as such it should be
more easy and convenient to use.
... tho I'm not sure about the wmctrl no longer maintained part.
Based on the comments there, wmiface appears to have been around since
the late kde3 era (since June 6, 2006 at least), but has been updated for
kde4. I've not installed it yet (and may not, since wmctrl is working
for me, but it's tempting to try, so I may, especially since gentoo has
it in-tree), so can't say how it compares, but if wmctrl doesn't work for
you anyway, this is something else that might.
There's a bunch of distro package links, plus sources, etc, available.
