thanks for the explanation.
Honestly, I don't think all (closed source) vendors will come up with
some USB display integration. Unfortunately I also doubt that XRandR
multi GPU stuff will be there anytime soon.
I guess I gotta be patient here (good training), but if I understand
correctly, there is hope.
As long as Xinerama isn't dropped completely I could try to combine
displaylink/fbdev with the nvidia drivers, where fbdev is probably the
more future-proof solution. If that fails, it might work to replace the
nvidia driver with (2?) more instances of fbdev, then combining all
fbdevs with Xinerama again.
That will require some playing around, but I hope I'll find some time
for that (in the next months).
