Despite the danger of stating the obvious...

Note though that it is limited to laptop displays and DDC compliant 
monitors, i.e. (AFAIK) does not support monitors connected with a 
regular, old-fashioned VGA cable.
The description also says it only works on i386 (including AMD64 I 
presume) and ppc.

It thus has a limited (though growing) application and other types of 
systems will also need to be supported (probably using current manual 
resolution/frequency selection methods).
