awesome! :) i honestly think that's all that's really needed.

we could, should we find a good reason to, easily add optional "secondary 
screen QML" layouts, and that would be a nice "junior job" task. just check 
for the existence of a qml file with a standardized name and load that instead 
of the main one on secondary screens. if it doesn't exist, load the primary 
one. voila.

correct. and one that supports all sorts of animation possibilities, and which 
eventually can be run using openGL (including shaders ....)
