Hi everyone,

Some months ago, there was some talk about removing the need for
declaring a 'Virtual' parameter in the Screen Section, Display
SubSection of xorg.conf.

What are the current plans?

In the spirit of auto-configuration, it would be very nice if this
parameter went away (or would default to the maximum possible size -
e.g. 2048 x 2048 on an i915).
