Hmm, but Xinerama will always stretch my virtual desktop together with
the KDE panel, background etc.to the second screen resulting in double
resolution hrizontally (assuming that I align the monitors
horizontally). The non-4:3 aspect ratio will confuse many programs.

The Xinerama options in the KDE control center will prevent maximized
windows from covering both screens but each virtual desktop still
stretches over both screens. What I want is two seperate sets of virtual
desktops on each screen but the screens should "know" each other so that
windows can be "sent" from one screen to the other.

You don't have to recompile KDE to add Xinerama support. The Xinerama options 
in the control center are grayed out as long as Xinerama support in the X server
is turned off.
