xresprobe is a very nice tool, it will investigate the connected monitor, and
allow you to set the resolutions supported by the monitor. We may consider
using it already in g-i, since it would allow to set the framebuffer size or
something, but i am not sure how this can be done easily.

currently xresprobe doesn't really support multi-headed setups though, but it
would be nice to have this solved for etch.
