I'm aware that xserver-xorg does this kind of thing; but I wasn't planning on 
rewriting the xorg scripts. And the xorg maintain _might_ be aware that 
kde-guidance exists. I vaguely remember saying on this list once that 
kde-guidance had this kind of functionality.

It would make even more sense if the xorg scripts where replaced with the 
Python code in kde-guidance. One less code base, and I hear that the xorg 
scripts are already a bit on the old side.
