In addition to the existing relative positioning config options, I think it would be useful to have abspos_x and abspos_y config options, which specify a corner of the conky window (which corner depends on the alignment setting -- e.g. upper-right alignment would mean upper-right corner of conky-window).

One example of where this would be useful is in the case where you have a dual-monitor setup, and wish to have an upper-right aligned conky-window on the *left* monitor. There's a partial workaround by using left-upper alignment, and large relative-positioning options, but this runs into problems if the output which is being displayed becomes too wide, in which case it would overflow onto the second monitor instead of conky auto-resizing its window's left-border.

    Another way is add ability to explicity choice the monitor, like:

    e.g
    monitor 1
    monitor 2, 3 - for two monitors...
