What I would suggest is that the rounded corners only for the foobar is
somewhat weird and inconsistent, only on top of the screen and you can cover
the corners which is weird since it's suppsoed to emulate a crt like screen
or whatnot.  I thought about this for a bit and came up with a perhaps usable

Draw four windows, one at each corner, which would be smaller then the
current rounded corners in ximian gnome. Then either keep the mouse out by
warping it out of the corners (so that you can still throw the mouse at a
corner and not hit dead space) or proxy events.

Now since I don't care at all about this feature I won't implement it myself

On the topic of xinerama, I'm currently working on that, that is you'll be
able to have a foobar on every xinerama desktop if you want.
