Fair enough.

How about getting XMonad to figure out how many screens there are, and
to start one on each screen? Maybe even removing/adding them as
screens are (dis-)connected?

Failing that, how about running a single status bar on the first
screen, but being able to toggle struts on that screen even when the
focus is on some other screen?
