Two monitors, one above the other, frame on bottom one.

(modify-frame-parameters nil '((top .   0.0)))
  => frame moves to top monitor
(modify-frame-parameters nil '((top .   1.0)))
  => frame moves tobottom monitor

Repeating those commands cycles between top and bottom monitor.

(and they're not flush to the edges, but this is with GDK scaling
going on, so Iʼm not too surprised by that).

Two monitors, one next to the other, frame on right one.

(modify-frame-parameters nil '((left .   0.0)))
  => frame moves to left monitor
(modify-frame-parameters nil '((left .   1.0)))
  => frame moves to right monitor

and again this cycles between the monitors. So whatever I tested
before, it wasn't this, and the behaviour is consistent between "left"
and "top".

I can't find anything in the elisp manual describing that the
workareas of the two monitors are combined like this.  Should such
information go in (elisp)Multiple Terminals, or (emacs)Multiple
Displays? Or both?
