Summary description: Absolute placement with coffins

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The abspos package lets you place contents at an absolute position,
anchored at some specified part of the contents, similar to how TikZ
nodes work, though without using the two-pass strategy of TikZ.
It also avoids messing with the order of beamer overlays, which
is what happens when one uses the textpos package with the
overlay option.
The solution used is quite straightforward, combining coffins
(using l3coffins) with the placement mechanisms of atbegshi.
