How about converting MonitorDB, currently a flat file owned by the hwdata package, to a directory? This would allow other packages to update the monitor list, and vendors could easily provide their own files to do this. Or one could simply drop .inf files into this directory and some external utility would recreate the existing file as an output, not part of a package, seeded by the current values.


What packages consume MonitorDB as an input?
