Miscellaneous patches to improve option parsing and documentation for

Allow single values to be given to --scale and --gamma, rejecting the
option if valid values are followed by extra junk (e.g. 2x3a isn't
accepted as a valid value for --scale), or if they are not positive.

Minor improvements to the documentation are also introduced, the largest
of which is the documentation of the xrandr monitor options.

v2: rebased on current head.
v3: fix code indentation, add grammar fix patch
v4: single value accepted for --gamma too, monitor options documented
v5: additional patch to check for positive values
