Exactly. Me too.
And on Linux, middle-clicking the title-bar sends the window to the
back of the stack, which I find very handy. On Ubuntu, middle-clicking
a Launcher icon opens a new blank window for that app, as well as any
other windows it may already have open.
It's indispensable functionality for me.
On the Mac, OTOH, I barely use it except for new browser tabs.
