[Tkinter-discuss] Multiple displays/monitors?

Some of my programs start up and initially size themselves to, for
example, 80% of the display height and width (usually because they
are going to be graphing something). That works 100% of the time
until someone has multiple monitors then winfo_screenheight() and
width() get misleading. They seem to return the max dimensions (width
+width and largest height), which isn't so bad if the two monitors
are really the same, but with things like Mac laptops and Cinema
displays it is usually not even close.
Is there a way to find out about multiple monitors through Tkinter?
I played with a bunch of the winfo methods, but didn't figure
anything out. ALL :) I want to do is get the dimensions of the two
(or more) displays and start the program in the center of the larger
of the two for lack of a better plan.
