I haven't done much with it since February, largely because my
available free time evaporated.  But I do intend to get back to it
when I have a chance.  But you're right, the storage position stuff
I've worked on is completely independent from display positions, and
certainly wouldn't prevent that being added separately.

Yeah, I'll try to clean things up and post a patch eventually.  And if
anyone feels like working on the display position piece, let me know;
perhaps we could pool our efforts for 8.4.
