That should be safe, with 2.0 it just won't read the screen metadata, and 
everything will be fine (but single-headed).

What do you mean? Without this patch (and with a working fam) it would 
appear on all screens, but with the patch it appears only on screen 0. 

The problem with the old behaviour is that there is only ever one position
stored for each icon, but the icon positions are not uptated between 
the desktops (if an icon moves on one it doesn't update on the others). 
This causes some strange behaviour. (Plus its useless to have the desktop 
be replicated on all heads.)
