To me, the reason we used struts instead of "do not cover" was to keep
the extents of the window from affecting the strut, e.g. for panels
that hide or whatever. So I think it's kind of strange to make struts
If partial-width struts are the solution, I think panels should have
to be xinerama-aware and set them explicitly partial-width matching
the xinerama heads.
