GTK+ has no concept of multi-headed applications ...
every window must be on the same display and same screen;
so until that changes, there is no point in worrying about

But not only that, as Felix says, the WM_CLIENT_LEADER is
associated with the application, not with the it's display
on a particular screen, so it doesn't make much sense
to talk about having multiple client leaders.

(If the session manager for the window manager for :0.1 
isn't the same as the sesssion manager for the window
manager for :0.0, then if an app is displaying windows
on both screens, things just aren't going to work nicely.)
