What problem do you hope that "Xorg -configure" would solve???

"Xorg -configure" is an anachronism that only very rarely serves any useful
purpose. When it succeeds to write a file, it's loaded with bits that Xorg gets
right automatically every time, which obfuscate the few bits that could possibly
be of any real use in solving a real problem.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
