Yes, if I get useful directions (mentoring, hint hint) I'll try to do
something that work for more than 2 screens, with different
resolutions, taking screen positionning / rotation into account,

I'm even thinking of different warping policies:
- translate: warp to suitable location on other screen
- blocking: stay on the current screen, do not enter forbidden area
- jump into corner of the other screen

but maybe only one of those will feel "natural"
