Yes, esüecially since the X-Server generated config template is often better
than hand generated modelines and monitor ranges. (with recent hardware)

I think the debconf based x configuration is realy a step back into the
stoneage. Even the xf86config was better than that. I remeber once a better
configuration using xf86cfg, I am not sure if that isnt the better way? Es
pecially it it is part of the base config.
