Well, to be truthful, what we have now *should* be 100% compatible
with 'using the auto-probed defaults' from previous releases. Anything
else is a bug, and should be filed against the X server.

Now, given those bugs, s-c-display should allow you to manually specify
a working config when X fails - that's a different set of issues.
