Also, 1152x900/910 (or 1152x864 for aspect ratio purists) would be a
good addition too, since many people with 1 meg (8 bit color) or 2 meg
(16 bit color) throw away a good bit of resolution by only running at

Also, a number of recent cards (S3's come to mind) also need some
weird tweaking (invert_VCLK and option "diamond") that the xf86config
might not address.

I've never really looked at xf86config, I always have hacked up my own
config files, but this sounds like a worthwhile hacking project.  I
might look at it.
