seems to me that it would be pretty simple to setup X to watch for a
new video card and launch dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg on a reboot
when there is a new one. Maybe udev could write to a file somewhere
with the info on what video was detected, and some rc script could
watch for that to change and make appropriate adjustments.
