No. However I've come up with a smaller dwm.c that excludes most of
the Screen abstraction and allows to be compiled without XINERAMA
support enabled and a xinerama.c that introduces the Screen primitives
and contains the sendmon() et. al. functions.

It's still not final yet, but I'm considering this as right move.

No worries, xinerama will be supported, but I wanted to have a leaner
core dwm without xinerama.
