Which is odd, because RandR reports geometry information using the
Xinerama protocol, so I would expect window managers that supported

RandR as well.

The RandR protocol spec is all we've got at this point


You might also look at the Xinerama man page (I can't even find a
protocol spec for this extension...). man 3 Xinerama.
