A nice idea, but I don't want to use RandR, because I don't want my window
manager to rearrange icons to fit the new screen size, resize the windows,
change font sizes etc. etc.. I just want to temporarily decrease the
resolution, for example to magnify some detail on the screen, and then quickly
return it back.
