I've had enough problems with games (usually SDL-using ones) starting in
full-screen mode then NOT RESTORING THE PREVIOUS SETUP ON EXIT, effectively
switching from multi-head to single-head, such that my answer to this is:
_ _ ___ _

| |\ | |_| |_|
Yes, it's trivially fixable with xrandr (and I have a shell script for that),
but then I usually still need to move windows back to where I want them.
I shouldn't need to do that.
