One of the reasons multiple monitors are more popular than big
monitors is that, if you've got a graphics card that supports multiple
outputs anyway, the cost of adding a second "mass-market size" monitor
is significantly less than buying a large monitor replacement.
Likewise it's easier to scrounge a second unused monitor at work than
manage to get a big monitor purchase authorised.

So whilst retaining excellent single monitor support is important, I
don't think multihead setups should be downplayed. (I'm waiting for
the dwm codebase to settle down before looking at porting my patches
forward. Ironically it's not the new features that are making me wait
but the "moving code around and back again seeing what's aesthetically
nicer or gives a smaller wc value" that has me waiting.)
