multihead monitors

For the blue print item about multihead monitors, I think the key is
xfce4-display-settings. This saves settings from session to session.
However, there is still the problem of more than one system setup either
on purpose or by accident. There needs to be something that monitors the
system setup and when it changes, loads the config for that setup.

This would mean that every  time there was a change in hardware, a monitor
was added or removed, a config file that fits that number or set of
monitors needs to be loaded.  That would mean more than one config file to
save. Or a general method to follow... ie size of whole screen, side by
side or top to bottom.

Really, it needs a good idea of how people would want 2,3 or 4 monitors to
be set up.... I can already imagine the same kinds of problems we have
with more than one audio IF. (which is hw0, does it change from boot to
boot, if there are 2 USB monitors which one is which)
