Answer: Multiple screens is simpler than multiple displays, since one X server
controls all of the screens.  Simply specify the XmNscreen resource when you
create your top level (or other) shell widget and the X Toolkit will create
the shell on that screen.  You should generally also explicitly set your
XmNcolormap, XmNdepth, and XmNvisual resources for the new shell, since the
defaults may not be valid on the second screen.
