Well, its not been developed now for like 4 years, maybe someone is picking up again, i don't know.

i get the desktop icons where they belong, just with a titlebar decoration.
if i use -o i get the icons how there where supposed to be, just on a wrong screen, where they are not visible and useable.
the panel otoh stays always on the right screen.
without -o it opens a normal window, with decoration an all, on the screen it was called on and behaves like a
normal nonsizeable window.
with -o it gets no window decorations as it should be, but stays on the very
top of all windows, and is not bound to a single screen, its there on all screens.
and its not coverable by fullscreen windows, it stays on top of then too.
