You still have to give it a static position.  If you're not
implementing the alignment properties for abspos yet, it should take
its initial values, which'll align it to the start/start corner and
size it "normally".

(We're not going to specify how to partially implement a property,
because that's silly, but I'm fine with giving personal guidance on
how to do so.)
