    Subject: Emacs geometry

    I've been reading the Emacs geometry discussion on emacs-devel.  Some
    possibly useful comments...

    To those puzzled about how you move the taskbar on Windows: It's easy,
    you drag it.  It can go at the top or either side.  I know no Windows
    users who put it at the top, but I know some who put it at the side.  I
    think you can do this on some X Window managers too.

    The solution seems to me to position Emacs relative to a different
    rectangle.  Rather than positioning it relative to the Desktop rectangle
    it should be positioned relative to the rectangle = (Desktop rect -
    Taskbar rect).  I think this will ensure it always pops up in a usable
    place, even if all the other behaviour were exactly the same as 21.3.

    Copy this to the list if you think it's useful.


cc'ing the list. I assume that the problem is that it is not known how to
let Emacs know where the task bar is. What you suggest is obviously the best
solution, if can be done.
