Thank you for saving me the trouble.  ;-)

Seriously, I seem to recall that setting up Xinerama was as simple as
editing XF86Config-4 and basically duplicating the "Screen" section,
adding the new "Screen 1" to the "ServerLayout" section, and firing up
X with +xinerama.  That's not to say it's that simple with a dual-head
