Multi-head support is in the works for XWindows 4.0 according to
I don't know when 4.0 will be released, though.  It doesn't say on
that page.  Though I do seem to remember seeing something recently (perhaps
even on this list?) that it'll be soon.

As an alternative I believe that some of the commercial XServer packages have
multi-head support.  Sorry I can't be more specific on that.
