They sound like broken clients to me, but fair enough, I think we
should do this, then:

This code breaks when the centre is on neither monitor. I'll look into
making dwm do this by calculating the area of intersection (a small
macro from dmenu).

I still think you should be able to cycle through any floating window
which occupies the selmon, but that would require a radical change in
our Xinerama support. I might write a supplement patch anyway.
