I actually tried that by looking at the sample that follows the source. But it didn't seem to work in my case. Or I didn't understand how to use it.

For example. I work a lot with Rails. So I want four URxvt terminals in one group and then Emacs and Firefox in another group. I couldn't figure out how to specify that URxvt should be opened in frames 0 to 3.

I also tried with dump-window-placement-rules, but that only gave me a file containing NIL.

You're looking for placement rules:
