re: your rant...

If you don't use proprietary, binary only, unsupported video drivers,
you shouldn't have to ever manually edit xorg.conf

It's really that simple

I understand why you are installing the proprietary blob drivers but
your ire needs to be directed at the companies that refuse to open
source their video drivers for whatever reasons because that means only
those companies can make the behavioral changes.
