Thanks for the advice.

I usually try to avoid Gordian knot-style solutions if I can, though.

Also, I realize by looking carefully that -geometry +x+y is implemented, for
various X11-based VOs, by letting the window be positioned at the WM's
decision and then moving it. I would like to understand exactly what is
going on.
