Without an add-on, is there any key combo that will move an active window to the alternate screen in a dual-headed display?

Without an add-on in XP, there isn't one. This has just been implemented in Windows 7 though:

Win + Shift + to move the window to the left monitor

Win + Shift + to move the window to the right monitor
