no, I do mean with Xinerama. As I've written before the trick is to link
a screen to a display:

:99:0 -> :0.0


:99:1 -> :1.0

and as far I understand the only way to get a display with two different 
screens (or more) on one display is Xinerama (or Twinview).

Right now, after various testing I do not have a working construction yet.
