 well, you need a xinerama-aware wallpaper setter app. I had some
limited access with one called 'nitrogen'. I think it's actually much
easier to create a single image with both wallpapers in it, and set it
using feh.

 -1 means not to put matching clients on any particular monitor
(instead, use the current selected monitor).
 Numbering probably depends on how xinerama data is provided.
