triggering xrandr from VGA plug event - intel 965GM

When I plug an external monitor to the VGA port of the i965GM, should
there be a dbus or udev event? Or some other event? I want to be able
to trigger xrandr --auto on monitor unplug, and xrandr --output VGA
--right-of LVDS --auto on monitor plug.

       In other words - MacOSX has been a bad influence  ;-)

Neither dbus-monitor (which I think should show hal events?) nor
udev-monitor show anything. kern.log doesn't hear of it.

Where should I be looking?
