Alright, does the Recipe look like this ?

a) 1 X.org server configured&running
b) Xinerama/etc bigdesktop enabled
c) 2 Xephyr servers running
d) evdev for keyboards & mice (USB/PS2 mix&match)

The following issues will be faced
1) Building X.org v1.4
2) Patching Xephyr (is it required, does the path work)
3) GDM/KDM config for Xephyr
4) evdev voodoo

So we need documentation on
i) Xephyr (updated man page, how to patch etc)
ii) How to configure GDM/KDM for Xephyr
iii) How to configure evdev (which input device to which terminal)
