What's 'virtual viewport' ?
I liked fvwm2 but as time goes on I've found extra utility from KDE.

You would have a couple of lines in xorg.conf like these
Section "Screen"
         Identifier "Screen0"
         Device     "Videocard0"
         DefaultDepth     24
         SubSection "Display"
                 Virtual 1600 1200    <-
                 Viewport  0 0                <-
                 Depth     24

Meaning my desktop is bigger than my physical screen (which is 1200 x  
768), and you slide around.  For some reason the big new suites like  
gnome and KDE won't permit it.  I can't stand anything that doesn't  
rely on pure text file configuration.

Virtual was provided by XFree86 and Xorg until recent version overhaul caused
it to disappear.
