It seems like there is now two different methods of getting a surface to 
be seen more than once: using this clone of an output, and the "views" 
stuff for putting a surface on more than one output.

I think it would be a lot nicer if these were merged, and the idea of a 
view being placed on multiple outputs is nicer. That provides a clean 
way of handling outputs of different aspect rations (by allowing the 
position/scale of the surfaces to vary) and more importantly gets rid of 
  a lot of annoyances of a true clone in that the mouse cursor and even 
popup menus can selectively not appear on the clone output (for 
presentations this would help a lot).
