I'd not be happy with removing that - XrandR solves some problems and
introduces others - namely that the desktop panel applets/icons etc
rearrange themselves for the lower resolution then sometimes don't
rearrange back. Using XVidmode has the advantage that the desktop size
doesn't change, only the screen resolution (which is what we want) but has
the disadvantage of enabling the hardware panning/sideslip stuff, which is
what we don't want.

More thought needed? Alex, comments?
