Can it not be controlled on what Xinerana "screen" it is displayed on.
Say the first by default, but the second at an option. Or is this a job
for the window manager?

I've not really looked at Xinerana support in SDL, as I'm developing for
single headed machines. I'm developing on a dual headed box, and it
would be useful to force my output to the second screen, and debug in
the first.
