Yes, it can certainly do that with the existing protocol; I need to go
figure out which box I added that code on. Too many machines.

Another useful option will be to have the driver report a few standard
modes even when no outputs use them so that we can just add them to
disconnected outputs without needing to program them explicitly from the
client side.
