Multiple Displays - not xinerama

Are there any plans to add support for multiple, independent displays
like xfce 3 had? Currently the only way I can run XFCE on dual headed
Sun Ultra 10 is with a custom .xinitrc script the starts the usual
stuff, changes the DISPLAY variable, then starts the stuff again. There
are a few problems with this method though.
1. Logging out must be done from display 0.0. Logging out from 0.1
2. You can't (easily) maintain different xfce4-panel configurations.
3. This method does not work with xfce4-session.
When using xfce4-session I have to start up just a single display then
open an xterm, change $DISPLAY, then finish bringing up the second
display. I tried changing the default.session to do the display
changing but it doesn't work. I get errors complaining that "such and
such" is already running on that display. Saving a running session with
both displays up also causes the same error when I log out and back in.
