I admit my statement was more of a guess and it was based on the fact 
that it lists a *lot* of modes for my laptop, including the 1680x1050 
modes which are native for my TFT.

Last year (when I bought my lapton) I STFW like mad to find the proper 
mode, but all tables I could find went only up to 1280x1024. Now I'm 
trying to promote "hwinfo --framebuffer" as much as possible.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
