two seperate pointers on dual head without xinerama

So here is the situation:
I have two monitors running separate desktops(without xinerama) and what I want to do is have a separate mouse for each screen. I don't want the two mice too control one pointer I want two separate pointers. I have XFree 4.3.0.
