I agree. The effective and/or working key word should also be modifiers for
the screenLoc function.

Yes, that is why I said (read below) that if others did not think there
should be an effective and/or working key word for the screenLoc function, I
would roll my own based on the screenRect function. I was asking whether
other think the screenLoc function should or should not have these keywords.
