I don't think anyone's really talked about it.  Really, though, this 
support should be added to gtk -- xfdesktop at least just uses gtk to 
enumerate monitors and screens.  Gtk doesn't appear to provide a signal 
for screen/monitor addition or removal.  Not really sure how to handle 
this here.  If someone wants to donate a computer with a video card with 
xrandr 1.2 support, as well as an extra LCD monitor, I'd be glad to look 
into it ^_~.
