xorg.conf file isn't used because the system is setup so that everything
(if possible)is detected automatically and setup/used depending on what
it finds (via some type of id that is used on various cards/monitors).
There are the exceptions I guess with dual monitors and certain setups
that normal users probably wouldn't encounter, as well as maybe certain
laptop setups.  I would say those type things might have to have an
xorg.conf file to get into more detail to get those type situations
working as they are suppose to.
