Of course, patches welcome.  (And also for implementations for other
platforms.)  I guess XRandR 1.2 covers most of the current uses.

Because XRandR or Xinerama doesn't help us get information about the
workarea (that's the task of window managers), we need some function
like x_get_net_workarea regardless of the use of XRandR or Xinerama.

Even with XRandR or Xinerama code, leaving the GDK code would be
meaningful because we may have yet another framework for multiple
monitor support (GDK already covers 3 of them on X11) in future.
