Thanks for the hint!  JSEvaluateScript does the trick: as Eric pointed out,
window.getSelection().getRangeAt(0).getBoundingClientRect() gets the
rectangle--I just didn't know that I could call it!  Similarly,
window.getSelection().removeAllRanges() clears the selection.

So my immediate need is met.  It's not the most transparent API, however...
