I'm working in MCL 2.0a5, so this code may not work in MACL 1.*.
The function window-manager-port is useful if you want to let the
user drag something anywhere around the screen:
(with-port (window-manager-port) [body])
You can also examine the window-manager port to find the size of
the screen. But remember that this isn't alway simple because
the two monitors together do not necessarily form a rectangular
space... one can be shifted up relative to the other.
I believe that there's a trap that you can call as well. [Is it
_sysenvirons? I'm not sure. I've never tried it.]

;; box may contain points which are not in the visible region.
