I've already put in to fixing autoconfiguration within X itself, and
that the press releases are just so much propaganda.  Don't get me
wrong, Fedora sucks at self-publicity, we should do better, but all I
see in that project is prettier UI and not technical correctness.  If
you do it _right_, you don't ever have to admit failure.  Asking for the
inf file is admitting failure.

I suspect you'll tell me why I'm wrong- But aren't there (a significant number of) situations where autodetect fails, and in fact due to hardware limitations can't succeed, but the process of the user specifying the monitor type, and info, from the driver CD, will cause success?

Even if those situations account for 1/10,000 users, those are precisely the cases that need to be covered to market something as "bulletproof".

Now of course, it won't solve the problem of the user getting confused and using the wrong CD for the monitor...
