I'm just a user, not an Xfwm developer, but that shouldn't really 
matter, right?

Yes, it does. However, you cannot set up relative monitor positions with 
Xfce's monitor configuration panel (yet). Use xrandr on the command line 
or a graphical frontend like arandr to do this. Xfwm4 does it's part 
just fine.
