I have implemented basic multi-monitor support for lxpanel. It still only supports one GdkScreen instance. It uses gdk_screen_get_n_monitors and related functions. Every panel now has an associated monitor, and the task bar has an option to only show tasks from the same monitor.
Here is what my desktop looks like with it: http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/825/dualb.jpg
This was mainly for my own convenience so the panel settings interface was only partially updated (It no longer checks for overlapping panels). Since this is my first time contributing to an open-source project, I want to see what it's thought of, before considering investing any more time into it.
