And to make matters even more interesting, upstream has decided to 
obsolete 6.6.19x and merged randr-1.2 -branch in it, releasing 6.7.191 

We'll make the new version available somewhere for people to test. It does 
mean that the old-style dual-head ("zaphod") won't work anymore, but we 
have randr-1.2 which works better. And tv-out too..
