Silicone causes marine painters fits, but if you are not planning on awlgriping anytime soon, it is probably the best compound for bedding windows and hardware which you want to be able to remove. It works better when thicker, allowing for some expansion and movement, so countersink the holes when you are mounting hardware, and don't squeeze it all out when you are bedding windows.
The best silicones I have used are the 'neutral cure' ones, but the US doesn't seem to have heard of them.
