I still have to test well xrandr 1.2 and gnome. For now I tested only
KDE 3.5.6, and I noticed crashes, strange window movements, mad
panels, when I activated a second screen on the fly.

I've seen the soc ideas pages for both gnome and xorg, there is a lot
of work to do.........

I can confirm that the monitor doesn't power on when it's powered off
by dpms, like with 1.7.2 driver version, and that's good!
