i think the config of illume on the neo forces windows to be
maximised, so even if your windows is 20 x 20, it will fill the whole
screen. either you need to modify this behaviour, or fit it all in one

i wanted to do a similar thing myself for an app i'm developing, but
any parameters to place/size windows are ignored, afaics
