Just to expand on what everyone else has eluded to, grandr isn't really in
very good shape. It's not maintained upstream and has some serious bugs. So
unless someone steps up to maintain it upstream, it's probably not going to
ship with Lenny. urandr, on the other hand, is actively maintained and
gives us a potentially good option for a randr gui. Ideally urandr will
work out well and we'll remove grandr from the archive.
