By making one client fullscreen we're already effectively doing this.
We're just making the other windows invisible, too. That seems to me
to be even worse.

What I mean is, if a window is between monitors, you should be able to
cycle through it on either monitor, its canonical monitor being the
one with the largest area of intersection. At the moment the window is
arbitrarily bound to one of the monitors (you cannot tell which
without focusing it), and can only be cycled through on that monitor.
This is a symptom of the stack-per-monitor approach, which imo is a
design flaw.
