How to start an app with “Always On Top” set?

Some programs (such as VLC) allow you to set them to be 'Always on top', but is there a way to do this for other programs? Perhaps there is an application that allows you to manipulate windows in this way? Or Metacity settings? There was such a thing in Windows so I'm almost certain some Linux geek has thought of it. ;)
