Guys, please, stop doing drugs and go learn to use acme to begin with,
grab boxes and tag bars should solve about 70% of the current problems
with columns.

Xinerama support should work just like now, except that you have two
views current at the same time, one in each screen. I suspect this
will need some trickery, specially to preserve geometry across views
if the screen resolutions are different.

Either way, for now it is much simpler to just run one wmii instance
per screen and forget Xinerama.
