I'm really worried that this is duplicating some work that is also
planned (or already being done, I don't know) upstream.

The GNOME control center maintainers want to have a nice screen
configuration tool, using xrandr. It might make sense to do this work
upstream, and have a script that detects if the computer has a
xrandr-suitable driver to launch the upstream tool or DisplayConfigGtk
(which would deal with the need to write to xorg.conf).


Les gens heureux ne sont pas pressés.
