Add a shortcut to toggle whether Guake is displayed on the top of the screen or on the bottom.

This might be a decent feature to add, but in the meantime, you may be able to do that through your window manager. Mine (XFWM4) supported that and a lot more out of the box, so I bound a bunch of them to the 'windows' key.

I could see this being very helpful, because... sometimes the visor is blocking the URL bar of the browser, so I move it to the bottom and sometimes it is blocking the bottom etc.

@jep-dev - Can you post details on how you configured this with your window manager? Thank you

Got a workaround with Gnome-3 and Fish shell, here

I recently added a keyboard shortcut in RHEL7 of ctrl + alt + ^ (because my guake toggle is right next to it with ctrl + alt + t) and gave it a value of /usr/bin/fish --command=guake_bottop_toggle where the guake_bottop_toggle command is in the snippet above,

Now it is flawless!

I have recently switched to an Arch system with the new Guake 3 in GTK3 and the have updated the snippet above to work in it by using dconf as opposed to gconftool-2.
