    Is it possible to get position (in numbers) of the insertion cursor? As
    I understood, Text widget uses mark named INSERT to store it, which is
    available globally by just referencing INSERT, but how could I get
    actual coordinate numbers of the mark?
    I need this because I want not just to insert string at, but to examine
    text before and after the insertion cursor. I can probably use .get() to
    extract the halves of text before and after cursor, but it'd be better
    just to know the position.

    Thanks
