Sorry, Weston does not implement clone mode at the moment, but there
have been patches around. I found one reference:
but I think there may have been some later series, too.

Controlling monitor placement at all is not possible yet, I seem to
recall seeing some attempts on that, too. If you to pick these efforts
up, finding the latest series on the mailing list archives would be the
first step. I think one of the problems was how to deal with
hot-plug/unplug and the things got awfully complicated - not so much
technically as in what would be an expected behaviour.
