DESCRIPTION
       In  general,  a window should never set its own position;  this should be done only by the
       geometry manger that is responsible for the window.  For top-level windows the window man-
       ager is effectively the geometry manager;  Tk provides interface code between the applica-
       tion and the window manager to convey the application's desires to the  geometry  manager.
       The  desired  size  for	a top-level window is conveyed using the usual Tk_GeometryRequest
       mechanism.  The procedure Tk_MoveToplevelWindow may be used by an application to request a
       particular  position for a top-level window;  this procedure is similar in function to the
       wm geometry Tcl command except that negative offsets cannot be specified.  It  is  invoked
       by widgets such as menus that want to appear at a particular place on the screen.

       When Tk_MoveToplevelWindow is called it does not immediately pass on the new desired loca-
       tion to the window manager;  it defers this action until all other  outstanding	work  has
       been completed, using the Tk_DoWhenIdle mechanism.
