limit mouse pointer movement to a certain screen area?


i would like to limit the area where the mouse can move to a subregion of the screen (say, for easiness, that i would want to be able to click only within 100,100 - 200,200). Is there a way how to do this (apart from hacking X)?

I admit this is a strange request. I use an ATI card in BigDesktop mode, but would like to have the mouse move only on one of the screens, that's why
