Agreed, specially because there are settings that allow treating
avoided windows specially, but in your case it would be useless (eg
maximize-avoid-avoided, you may want one thing with real avoided
windows, but this extra window should still be always avoided... it is
not a normal window, but useless zone).

How do you get the pointer to travel out of screen?

Maybe, or at least subscribed. My conclusion is that XRandR creates a
new situations that we should investigate and then adapt code to it;
so if you do not mind, could you help us figure at least one of those
(multiple non overlapping and non matching screens, which could cover
also L arrangements of 3 screens, etc)?

The other two I can think of are multiple screens with matching edges
and different screens with overlapping areas (this one always makes me
think how per monitor things will work, like colour correction, as the
window appears twice). Any other case or better classification of the
possible situations?
