Know how to CREATE a dual monitor for VNC?

I had an idea I thought might be good. Just try to grasp it.

I want an application that will either trick the computer into thinking it is attached to an external monitor, or it creates another external screen. You need to be able to adjust the resolution of the "screen" too.

It would be cool if, say your computer only supports one external display, the "fake screen doesn't count as one.

The reason for doing this is so that VNC applications could use the other screen, making it act like an external monitor. Mainly for the iPhone.


I know I did not explain that well at all, if anyone can say that better please do.

Would anyone use this? Thanks.
