go for it! since there where a registry key for this i had to fix it
source every time. there are games out there that wont work without
proper setting (e.g. Richard Burns Rally in my case 1600x1200). a text
input is simple and easy - everyone, who does not know what to do will
leave it alone and the others will see the wrong number and fix it.
later when there are better ways to acquire this number one still might
be able to change/correct it there if the algorithms fail or for people
with graphics-cards, that does not allow reading the value.

dont go for it! if it is supposed to be the default enable it and keep
the key for the developers. for osx: change the default at compile time
using autohell?
