if you don't want to use xinereama, then you'll need to launch two
instances of everything .. one on each $DISPLAY.  i never liked xinerama.
this is what i use.

DISPLAY=:0.0; xfce-mcs-manager &
DISPLAY=:0.0; xfwm4 --daemon &
DISPLAY=:0.0; xfdesktop &
DISPLAY=:0.0; xbindkeys &
DISPLAY=:0.0; xfce4-panel &

DISPLAY=:0.1; xfce-mcs-manager &
DISPLAY=:0.1; xfwm4 --daemon &
DISPLAY=:0.1; xfce4-panel &
DISPLAY=:0.1; xbindkeys &
DISPLAY=:0.1; exec xfdesktop
