Working on left monitor, rigth monitor is empty on selected tag.
While pressing Ctrl+Mod4+J more than one time, I can't recognize, which monitor is selected. So, new window is opened in random monitor... I see only unmodified focus at the left monitor.
I suppose to indicator of selected monitor on taskbar. Maybe some changes of menu button can do it.
This task depends upon

Does the position of the mouse pointer count as visual feedback?

Else, feel free to come up with a good idea. I don't have one.

May be change menu button color (awesome logo) at panel? At my two monitor configuration, small mouse cursor is almost ivnisible in right corner of the left monitor, so I don't know about mouse cursor feature before you say.
