Take the position of the event-end (if it's a frame) and translate it
into absolute screen coordinates (the Elisp manual should give you
enough clues to do that).  Or, try ‘mouse-absolute-pixel-position’ - it
should give you the screen position of the mouse at that time so you can
ignore the event completely.

Then walk all your windows and compare that position with whatever
‘window-absolute-pixel-edges’ returns for that window.  If you have two
or more positives, run ‘frame-list-z-order’ and compare the result
against those windows' frames.  No hands, IMHO.
