I should have thought the simplest way round this problem was to work on 
the assumption that from now on
ALL Apple displays will have a notch and "cut one's stack" to 
accommodate that.

Of course this is only relevant to people who want to annoy end-users by 
providing full-screen window apps.

When this mode is active, the system changes the active area of the display to avoid the camera housing. This mode can be turned on/off by the user via a checkbox in the app’s get info panel or it can be activated or deactivated by the developer via a new ‘info.plist’ key.
