Has *no one* heard of DMX (Distributed multihead X), let alone used
it?  Furffu!

Or xmove, however, it is... erm... unflexible in usage. You have to
start all your applications on the special display, if you ever want
the capability of moving them. Perhaps it surfices to start your
window manager on the special display, but that will be somewhat slow.

Also, beware the dragons. Hope your network is reliable :) (I gave up
the plan of starting my window manager on my laptop from my desktop,
because I was unplugging the laptop too often).
