Ah well, that's great, except... My suggestion was based on the
experience I had with Ubuntu Warty standard install (and any other
system prior to that, since XFree86 4.0 got out): I had to manually set
my HorizSync values in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, since I don't enjoy
garbled screens. :) Perhaps I'm just using cheap hardware, but if I
knew much about Display Data Channel (DDC) and how X handles it, I'd be
happy to send whatever data my screen provides to any central database
there is.

I hope to try Hoary Live-CD one of these days, so I may report back on

Ah, great. I'll subscribe to ubuntu-devel so I don't get lost in web
forums first, though. Then, I hope not to forget about pestering them.

Thanks for your responses, Matt and Anders!
