Being an openbox+xinerama user for years, I am a big fan of this idea
(that and the client-list-combined == alt-tab menu suggestion). I like
where openbox development is going. Dana sure has gotten things to

which window is on which head, this feature would kick ass!

There is symmetry in chaos, and chaos in overmuch order.
