[SLUG] stretch screensaver across multiple monitors

I've been playing with a Xinerama setup at work the past few days and I
would like to configure xscreensaver to stretch a single screensaver across
multiple monitors. I've read the xscreensaver man page and searched online
but have found no mention of whether or not this is currently possible. The
following is from the xscreensaver changelog which makes it sound like the
functionality existed at one point but perhaps it has been removed:

" 4.13 07-Sep-2003

    * On Xinerama systems, xscreensaver now runs one hack on each monitor
(just like in ``real'' multi-head mode) instead of running one hack
stretching across all the screens. Note that for this to work with any 3rd
party screensavers, they must update their ``vroot.h'' file. "

I would be very grateful if anyone could share how to achieve this with
xscreensaver or any other Linux screensaver.
