Speaking about kwin:

Not necessarily for the beta-goals, but for the final release somebody
should sit down and fix the xinerama issues in kwin as well. I'm rather
astonished that xinerama is basically completely broken, because I was
under the impression that the "standard" kwin code didn't change that
much (i.e. the non-compositing stuff)...


It's lucky you're going so slowly, because you're going in the wrong direction.
