To be able change the XY position of rendered windows. Needed if making a custom HID control window with no toolbar. Yet also interesting for allowing windows to self arrange themselves depending on composition settings. If we also get "hide toolbar" window preference then we could use this in tandem to have a "sticky" window layout. (Simply by moving windows close to each other various windows could magnetically connect- and it would look like one GUI to user.)

Vuo already has a Change Window Position node which lets you specify the X/Y coordinates of the top-left of the window. There isn't yet a way to get the window's current position, so I'm interpreting this feature request as being for a new Get Window Position node. I updated the title accordingly, and opened it for community voting.
