Multimonitor support in Wine?

Its me again.
Ive been trying to figure how to get a (single) Wine application to be able
to display dialogs on each of 3 monitors in a non xinerama setup (DISPLAY
:0.0, :0.1, and :0.2).
I am well aware that xinerama mode would allow this quite easily, but
xinerama is not an option, partly since CDE on Solaris will not work in
xinerama mode, and a little thing called Software Requirements Specification.
I am also aware this isnt specifically a wine issue, but in researching
what could be done about over the past week, I found several references to
gdi_display, x11drv_thread_data, and various other constructs and class
members in Wine that describe which display to use. This leads me to
believe there is some method to allow Wine to enable the desired functionality.
Whether the method to support this functionality is built in or needs to be
coded, I have not yet determined, since nearly every file in dlls/x11drv
directory uses these members and constructs.
If someone has any insight on how to implement this or where I should focus
my efforts, it would be very helpful.
