I get it. You don't have :99.0 and :99.1, you just have one protocol
screen, and position the Xephyr windows based on your knowledge of the
Xinerama or Twinview configuration. Sure, that works too, and should
work equally well with the nested driver.

I see one of the complaints in netpatia's documentation is difficulty
configuring the geometry of the nested windows. A patch to tell the
nested driver what window geometry you want should be easy to write and
would be welcome.
