Summary0007267: Add preference to present/position windows in center of screen
DescriptionMost of the dialogs Ardour are positioned at the mouse cursor when first presented.

This is not always the behaviour that people want or expect IMO and propose there be an option to use GTK_WIN_POS_CENTER as the default.

One example where the current behavior of opening a window centered on the mouse pointer is problematic is: when you open a new window (create new tracks window for example) by using a keyboard shortcut. You might have your mouse pointer in a position that results the new window opening part of it outside the screen and invisible.

Centering new windows at the real center of the screen is a much better default behaviour IMHO.
