I had suggested before, on the IRC channel #xouvert, that the Xserver needs
an autocalculation mode, that all I do is say "Modes" "address@hidden", and it
automatically constructs a modline of 1024x768 at 60hz. (And saying "1024x768"
by itself just constructs a 1024x768 modeline using the default 4.3.0 method)

This makes it easier to make custom modes without having to deal with
modelines, and I hope someone implements it before Xouvert R2.
