Xrandr(3) doesn't provide a simple interface to manage multiple
screens, Xinerama(3) is much more convenient and much simpler as well.
If Xrandr(3) is changed accordingly to provide a similiar simple
interface, I'd switch to it. But currently we'd end up with much more
code, if we'd stick to Xrandr(3) only, and the code would look very
similiar to how Xinerama is implemented on top of Xrandr nowadays.

Kind regards,
