Yes, I know.  I have a gtk patch for that in the pipeline.

But that alone doesn't get multihead work sanely as there is at least
one more problem to tackle:  Mouse coordinates are not correct.  Our
options are:

 (a) Have guest notify host about screen arrangement, then transform
     coordinates in qemu.  Dave did that initially.
 (b) Have a guest agent (spice style).
 (c) Have one tablet per head and link them.  That is very simliar to
     physical hardware (think touchscreen).

I think (c) will work best long-term, but it is also the most difficult
one as various projects are involved here to get the guest-side
configuration done.

I've changed the number of heads to be 1 by default, we better sort all
those issues before we flip the multihead default switch.
