i observed another interesting fact: using multiple monitors (2 in my

xinerama," that's much heavier on the CPU than using them as "twin vies."
no idea why that is so, but it's very obvious on my system.

it's pretty obvious, actually: with "twin views" both monitors use the same X
server, whereas "separate X server" needs two of them: double the overhead.
