Is there a "always on top" option for gnome-terminal?


I am loading a terminal from the command line using the command gnome-terminal and there are two things I want to do:-

(1) Specify location and size
(2) Enable "Always on Top"

I know how to do (1) with the --geometry option. But I cannot find a way to accomplish (2). Can someone please tell me how I can do this?

Thanks.

That is an awesome tool! It does other things I think I may need too. Cheers.
