The community already has multihead features in compiz and the various
plugins based on the xinerama patches. I just hope that when the
multihead stuff is done properly in Xglx, that the changes to the code
on the multihead side aren't too much hassle. HOpefully it'll save David
some hassle on the compiz side, but perhaps not....
There is a lot of talk just now on the xorg mailing list about XRandR
and how it will provide services for mutlihead stuff.
I'm sure that's begging out for a compiz plugin that does some stupid
fancy animation to create two screens from one (despite it's
pointlessness, I would love it ;))
