Looking for a more elegant solution than just writing a 'sleep' script

I am using compiz to place and position certain applications'windows.
Firefox and xchat-gnome start before compiz, and so aren't placed or
positioned properly at startup.

All other decorating takes place as soon as compiz is loaded; other
programs are placed and positioned properly but are initiated later in
the start process.  Firefox and xchat-gnome are placed and positioned
properly if closed and reopened.

I received the above suggested line from members of my local Lug after
about an hour conferring on xchat-gnome.
