I use multiple monitors (with Synergy), and I'd like to make the mouse pointer jump over to the next monitor without having to move it. Yes, I am that lazy. Does a program that does something like this exist?

You could use either of these in your config file:

keystroke(alt+left) = switchInDirection(left) Switches to the screen to left when the left arrow key is pressed in combination with the Alt key.

keystroke(shift+control+alt+super) = switchToScreen(moe) Switches to screen moe when all of the Shift, Control, Alt, and Super modifier keys are pressed together.
