make window on top

I am using debian-squeeze with GNOME .
Is there a commandline based utility to resize window & also 'stick it on top' ?
in windows xp , I had cmdow ( which gave me handle & option to hide , maximize , remain on top etc.

i tried wmctrl
i am able to activate a window using
wmctrl -l
wmctrl -i -a <hexadecimal-ID>

i could not make it 'always on top'
I guess , it is related to 'sticky' but can't figure out how to do ?
