Automatic X reconfiguration.
For those of you who are not myself or Jeff:
* If gdm can't start X, the XKeepsCrashing handler kicks in.
+ First time in a boot XKC gets called, generate a new configuration
and dump it somewhere in $TMPDIR. Try to start X with it, throw
up a 'If you can see this, we've reconfigured your X server, and
stuff should work now; do you want this configuration change to
stick?' message, only worded less stupidly.
+ Failing this, reconfigure for vesa, throw up the same message,
only with a 'daniels sucks, please send <this information> to
<whereever it is that I can get useful information put>' appended.
+ Failing THAT, try fbdev or vga or something, with a 'dude, here's
five bucks, go buy a Cirrus card or something' appended to the
+ Failing that, throw up ye olde 'well, we're screwed, aren't we?'
on the console.
* Have a neat little tool that automatically packages up all the info
I need to fix this and try to send it to me somehow.
* WORLD DOMINATION. Or something.
