Several "fakearama"-solutions have been around for a while, i.e.

I think this feature should be part of the Xserver itself, i.e. you could
then also sub-divide a single 30" LCD to i.e. four pseudo 15" LCDs if
that better matches your work habits. It would be even better if
the XineramaInfo could be changes during run-time on the fly
so that you can match the behaviour to whatever is currently
required (i.e. further sub-divide one of the 15" pseudo LCDs
mentioned in the example, above). Should be very easy to
implement that in Xorg.
