well, the point of being in the corner is to make it easy to reach when 
maximized (which is when well behaving window decorations push the buttons to 
the edge of the screen). so the question becomes: which is the most commonly 
used button when maximized? the choices are: restore/un-maximize, minimize, 
sticky, help or menu.

i understand that "double click the title bar" could also be unmaximize, but 
it is neither discoverable nor easy to accomplish. that's why we have buttons 
in the first place: single click interfaces =)
