I just installed changes to implement posn-at-point and posn-at-x-y.

I also fixed a recent bug that practically disabled vscrolling.

However, there is still one important limitation to when vscroll actually works:

- If image at top row of screen is fully visible and cursor is in top
  row, vscroll is reset.  This is because making the cursor row fully
  visible takes precedence over vscroll.

My new fix ensures that if the top line contains an image which is
taller than the window height, vscroll is allowed even when the cursor
is in that line.

So if someone would like to enhance line-move and scrolling to
deal with "tall" images, please do it.

I have also added an enhancement to pos-visible-in-window-p to return
pixel coordinates and partial visibility status of the row at the
given position if PARTIALLY arg is non-nil.

E.g. if (nth 2 (pos-visible-in-window-p (window-start))) is non-nil,
the first line is only partially visible, so vscrolling may be
