[R] any way to set X11() device geometry (screen offsets)?

I am writing an R program to plot data as part of a real time display in a
operations center (NOC).  Is there any way, when starting an X11 device in
R, to 
control the location of the plotting window on the screen?

I want to put up nine x11 plot windows at different places on the display,
and I want 
the operators to be able to rearrange the window as they see fit by mousing
with the borders.

Most of the pieces are already there (like the width and height parameters
in the X11 
call, and the interactive behavior) except the x and y screen offsets.
