Command-line on multiple monitors, ScreenWM?

I have an older computer with Arch installed that I want to use to accomplish most of my daily tasks using the command-line (Mailgrab, IRSSI, mpg123, Elinks, Vi, etc). I realize that there are many lightweight WMs out there that support multiple monitors, but it'd be nice if I could just use Screen or something to that effect to distribute my windows across two or three displays. Any suggestions?

Update: after doing some searching, it looks like DVTM is an improvement to Screen and will help me greatly; however, I don't see anything about using multiple monitors with it.


cli, monitor, multiple, screen
