It would be a lot simpler to change the mcs manager so that it manages
all screens and duplicate the values on all screens. When mapping a
setting dialog on demand, mcs manager would simply move the window to
the current screen.

This way, minimal change in applications' code, no API change, no
translation change, etc. I guess I can come up quickly with an
implementation if needed. We could keep a more complex solution for 4.4
(with, why not, D-BUS as a backend?)
