You could take a look at my "Transparent Dialogs" and their scripts
("User Contributions" on the RunRev site). Although you might not be
interested in the "transparency" feature - which is something just for
fun - setting the loc of these stacks is implemented.
From the description:
"These are modified "ask" and "answer dialogs", which can be used with
the "answer" and "ask" commands......
An additional feature of these dialogs is that you can set their loc to
any point of the screen - or relative to your stack; just add a line
like "set the NewLoc of stack "answer dialog" to x,y" before you use the
ask or answer command."
