Aha, that's the problem.  Your monitor is actually incapable of doing
DDC -- we can't even pick up the name of the monitor automatically. 

Fabio, would you accept a fallback of prompting the user with a list of
monitors and resolutions generated from the Linux Monitors Database or
whatever it's called if DDC fails?
