Ummm... I, for one, would not like to be responsible for writing a
script to generate an Xconfig for someone... that way they can't blame
me when the script produces a set of timings that make their monitor
blow up...

It's been my experience that rolling an Xconfig mode takes about half
an hour of tweaking (does that work?  No, a little more to the left).
And that's when you've done a few before, and know how things go.
Someone installing debian is almost certainly going to have to be
editing their Xconfig file themselves... :)
