I do, using nouveau (there were driver bugs in such config, I had to use
"vertical X Y" equal to xrandr X Y), radeons (work fine except the
cursor sometimes behaves interestingly near the physical border) and
intels (probably same cursor oddities?).

I also use a dual-screen setup where for example the bigger screen is
1920x1080 and the smaller laptop screen uses panning (with cloning - the
"border" patch doesn't matter in this case).

Not counting the need to revert the Fedora "border" patch and the cursor
issues, it works flawlessly.
I also use it, from time to time, with chips like Silicon Motion
SM722(?) and with Volari Z9s.

I don't know if my desktops are "large" though :-)
