Sure, that would make it a bit more consistent. However, the -mm-

I've heard that preview-latex uses these functions to display images
in real size.

Yes.  Xinerama also supports such configurations.

As I mentioned earlier, the concept you want
has another name "framebuffer" in the X11 (Xinerama) world, and I
think the right thing is to support them in a consistent way on the
relevant platforms.

Yes, that would be good - perhaps in Emacs 22.2 or 23.

I've been using the attached patch to make `mac-display-available- pixel-bounds' available, which will take the Dock and menu bar into account when reporting the size of the display. If window managers support it, a cross-platform version of this would be useful, too, after the release.
