moving windows to another monitor

I was wondering if there is a way to simply move the window to another monitor. If I can set panels to apper on another monitor, I thought to myself that there must be a way to just move the wnd to another monitor. I'm aware of pack window to the right/left feature, but moving to another monitor is done with more than one click.

do you mean using a multi head display, spanning of the desktop on multiple screens?
If this is what you mean, then look up the use of xinerama with X.

I am using multihead display. Furthermore, i'm using nvidia's twinview.
But all of this is not really important(from users' point of view - of course it is from implementation's point of view).
I am now used to pack window to the right/left with couple of keyboard clicks, but... .
I was looking for a solution similar to ultramon on windows. I just thought that it's a shame that this feature don't exist, since panels know where on which monitor they are supposed to reside(I mean I can tell them where through customize panel utility), so why not do the same with windows?. If one can switch monitor for the panel, why one can't switch monitor for window? ?(
Obviously, I'm not getting into the implementation level. I just think that this feature could be implemented(unless it already is), giving more joy for the multi head monitor users. That's all.
