This got bounced around the list a while back, and from what I remember, there is no clean way to do this on all platforms. I think you have to shell out, and even then it may be problematic. 

However, wouldn't it be possible to "maximize" a rev window and then check it's dimensions? Do a little math for the menu bar on a mac and the app bar in Windows and there you go.
