      More info from another user:

      One of the things that a desktop manage will
      typically do (although it may not) is resuffle
      windows and icons around when the pane has been
      resized.

      A desktop manager will possibly do things like
      re-arranging icons so that they stay at the
      bottom of the pane. If the manage supports "tiled"
      internal frames, then it might re arrange the
      positions of internal frames. One thing that
      even the default desktop manager
      javax.swing.DefaultDesktopManger should to is
      resize maximizedinternbal frames so that they
      stay maximized.

      You can implemet this functionality now with
      appropriate listeners, But I really feel that
      inside DesktopManager is where it belongs.

      PS - no need to load up the default manager
      with too much functionality. Things like
      relocating iconised frames should be done
      in MetalDesktopManager (which does not currently
      exist). This because MS windows, at least, does
      not do it, and so the windows look and feel
      ought not.
