When it comes to the workspace part, what about xmobar/dzen in a
logHook? The default sorting method there may not be the best for
multiple screens, therefore you might like to try to use one of the
xinerama sorting modes (getSortByXineramaRule &
getSortByXineramaPhysicalRule from X.U.WorkspaceCompare). They place
the windows for each of your screens first, so the first screen in the
list is your leftmost monitor. It all depends on how you use your
workspaces if this is appropriate for you.
