I've seen a screenshot with a window split between two monitors.

Looks like it!

I found an article earlier (howtoforge.com, in the Ubuntu section,
probably first or second page, or you could try a search) about
installing IE on Ubuntu. Different versions of IE were mentioned too.

Doesn't help with the Windows client, but maybe
VMware/Xen/VirtualBox/etc. would solve that problem. Then you could
have multiple Windows versions running on one machine!
