Seems that XRandR support in dwm is becoming a requirement soon, unfortunately.

I wonder which X morons are to blame for dropping Xinerama completely...

I think the whole crowd is totally misled by dodgy desktop
environment communities...

Hopefully I will find some sponsor to fund a from-scratch X server and
X lib reimplementation which does multihead without any quirks and
hacks like XRandR... and which provides a decent font interface to
begin with.

Kind regards,
