smartBorders generally is a no-op if there are multiple
screens. I was rather pleased when I discovered that (I
didn’t start using smartBorders when I first heard of it
because I thought it wouldn’t work with multiple screens. I
later decided to fix smartBorders, but when I looked at the
source I saw it was already fixed!)

I don’t use floating windows (such as full-screen floating
Mplayer), though, so it might remove their borders even with
multiple screens.
