OK, now I'm confused.  What I want:

When on the move or anywhere in the house but the study I want to use
the internal LCD at 1024x768.  This is fine.

When in the study I have a 20" LCD I want to plug in, when I plug it in
I want X to probe the new monitor, detect that it can handle 1680x1050,
resize the screen to that size, and disable the internal LCD.  I don't
want to have two X screens, I want my single screen to resize to fit the
larger monitor.

Is this not cloning with hotplugable output devices?
