It seems to be difficult to reach agreement about absolete unscaled
vs. absolute scaled.  Fortunately, that doesn't matter for X11
currently, and we agree with the necessity of a special function
that returns absolute unscaled coordinates to pass to an external
program.  Why don't we start discussing the specification of that
special function, letting absolute unscaled vs. absolute scaled
aside for now?

My proposal was to make it parallel to posn-at-x-y, as I mentioned.

(posn-at-x-y x y&optional frame-or-window whole)

Sure.  Please check the ifdefs in the window absolute functions I
made to see the various differences w.r.t tool bar and menu bar.

I don't think such ifdefs are necessary.  The strategy I'm thinking of

   1) Convert window coordinates to frame coordinates if the third
      argument is not a frame.  This should be similar to the code in

AFAIK, there is no pos-at-x-y function.  Did you mean posn-at-x-y?

   2) Call a terminal-specific function that converts frame-relative
      coordinates to absolute coordinates.  That can be done by the
      following "idiom".

        x += f->left_pos + FRAME_OUTER_TO_INNER_DIFF_X (f);
        y += f->top_pos + FRAME_OUTER_TO_INNER_DIFF_Y (f);

      on X11 and

        ClientToScreen (FRAME_W32_WINDOW (f),&pt)

      on W32, I guess.

You left out Nextstep/OSX.

By the way, window-(inside-)absolute-pixel-edges doesn't seem to take
account of title bar height.  Is that correct?

Why should it? The titlebar isn't an Emacs window in X, it belongs to the window manager. Top/left does not point at it, it points at the Emacs frame.
