[PD] size and position of PD window

Well, I can think of applications that have a preference for which *screen* to open a window on (fullscreen video output for instance) but not one with a preference for specifying x, y, w, & h of a window to open. This kind of geometry setting can also be fragile as you change the amount of monitors in your setup, etc. I would therefore argue this is not a basic setting and it's also not trivial to try to divine what settings all users *might* want and then add a UI for them. OTOH if you have a working technical solution, feel free to make a PR to the Github repo for review.

IOhannes' solution is by far the best: If you want to run some TCL to customize things, then do so *and* without having to modify Pd tcl files. :)
