Well, *some* of the development texm. Some of us agree that forcing the
dpi to 96 is a b0rked regression. It is just that those with the contrary
opinion are more vocal and have more traction.
It is easy enough to avoid, though, by always starting X with the -dpi
option. One has to add -retro, too, for a reasonable startup experience,
so ading -dpi is not horribly onerous.
An -edid-dpi option (or some orthographic variation thereof) would be
useful, though. And the propsed patch is at least a step towards such.
