Unfortunately this utility seems very Debian/Ubuntu specific - for
example there's some code that shells out to dpkg and apt-get.  Plus I
see some rather dubious code...  First of all, it seems to want to run
as root, which shouldn't be necessary to use XRandR.  Second, code
like this:

        self.command = 'sudo rm -R '
        self.remove(files, verb)

seems to be begging to be exploited.  I think that I'm staying far
away from this code...
