ok. this however is a bit out of scope/too specific to warrant a
bootparameter just for this.
the basic assumption is that, hardware wise, we're living in a perfect
world where everything works automatically. if it doesn't, you'll need
to tweek stuff anyway and there's not much way we can guess what and how
you have to tweek things to make it work, so we just make sure that e.g.
you can have your own xorg.conf, but not offer a gazillion of different
(and confusing) options to influence xorg.conf generation apart from the
basic things (keyboard and driver selection).
