New window postioning options

It is often desirable to start a program in a new window that is positioned
in one of the screen corners, or in the center of one of the screen edges,
or in the center of the screen. I achieve this goal currently by starting
the program, using @WINPOS to obtain its window measurements, performing the
appropriate calculations, and repositioning the window using ACTIVATE. One
of the deficiencies of this method is that I cannot use the START /WAIT
option, instead, I need to use a DELAY loop, continually testing for the
demise of the window. It would thus be very useful to be able to provide the
equivalent feature as a START command option.
