[PD] [GEM] multi-displays in win2k

ok.  i have gem going in win2k and i have two displays (one crt for 
the patch, tv for the gemwin) driven by a geforce2 card.  i have the 
extended desktop going but i would like to do the following:

- have unequal sized displays (the crt 1024x768 + tv 640x480).  right 
now i can only do 1600x600 even though the card can do many different 
combinations of resolutions.  i can do this in linux, but can't get 
it going in win2k using nview.

- move the gemwin without the border.  i checked the code and it 
doesn't seem like the position of the window can be set through an 
argument or message like a [position X, Y].  perhaps also when 
creating the context there could be a [fullscreen n] message where n 
is the display number??  or is there some easy way to drag the thing 
without the title bar that i don't know about...

- get rid of the stupid task bar.  i checked the hide task bar 
feature but there is still a sliver of it at the bottom of the 
screen.  it's on both screens which is even more annoying.
