I don't know if your code can achieve what you want, but you're  
probably best off modifying (redefining) the function `find-good-frame- 
position' (see smart-frame-positioning.el).
That'll give you the best access, and you can reuse the remaining  
smart-frame-positioning infrastructure.  And if you come up with good  
code, we can even integrate it in Aquamacs.
