right click on the region, from the menu select "Popup region editor". in
the dialog that appears, type the desired position of the region in the
"position" clock.

in theory, "splice" edit mode works a bit like this, but it was an

goals, but don't be suprised if its behaviour can be a bit erratic. the edit
mode selector is just left of the mouse mode/tools menubar.
