  Adding a mode works well.
  But the output indicates that the mode is used for the last output
  (which is obviously not the case), there is only a single space
  difference. I really like the output formating of the mode parameters,
  though :)
  Works well, but not together with --newmode. Error message is missing
  a trailing \n.
  Works. Again, not together with --addmode.
  So, in order to enable 1024x768 on a non-attached external output,
  currently you have to call xrandr at least three times.
  Doesn't seem to work at all right now.
  Doesn't seem to work at all right now, even for non-added (only
  invoked --newmode) modes.

All in all this is surely good enough for our use case.
