You can use --pos 0x848 to position the "below" screen with a 202 pixel

It's a shame that the 2048x2048 limitation is just too small.  Readily
available _single_ screens are pushing that.

For me I have just disabled all of DRI, Xv etc in order to be able to
extend my desktop, but I wonder what the timeframe will be for the 3D
engine to get that limit removed...
