Negative on that. The Nouveau driver using one video card with VGA/DVI outputs
using XRandR-1.2 doesn't create two displays.

Now, using the xorg nv driver, one could use two screen sections, but as of
XRandR-1.2, I'm not sure. But this scenario would create the two displays (ie.
DISPLAY :0.0, DISPLAY :0.1) so that one could export a program into.

As I hack away here, the more I see DWM Xinerama is really Xinerama Extension,
but with XRandR enabled still. Somehow I was able to specify Xinerama Enable
within the xorg.conf and I wasn't able to execute xrandr due to it being
disabled by Xinerama. Hence, very confusing.

But I've set things up per Nouveau's XRandR-1.2 web page. wmctl doesn't see
anything. No Display to export to. Only method is to move the mouse to the
second monitor and use MetaKey+P (aka DMenu) to start a program on that
