aterm's -geometry option

Not exactly Afterstep, but it is the Afterstep Terminal...close enough
right?  ;-)

The '-geometry' or '-g' option of aterm lets you set the size of the
window (ie. 80x25 characters) or the window location (using standard X
geometry), but doesn't seem to let you do both.  If I specify size and
location after the same -g I get the usage output, implying the command
line is wrong.  If I use 2 separate -g options; one with size and one
with location, the latter overrides the former.  Is it possible to
specify both size and location in the command line, or do I have to go
about it some other way?
