Of course. This is a first step.
Does system-config-display uses the X.org library? I think this tool's
developer simply learned the xorg.conf format and wrote code to
Actually s-c-d uses the Python binding to this X.org library
And system-config-display, as far as I know, is a monolitic tool
don't permit HW vendors, or X plugin writers, to independently extend
it. Whit a key/value pair paradigm, these folks can write a 10-line
Shell script to correctly integrate itself in X, without having to
deal with a lexical parser, complex structs, and C.
There's a small tool, written in Python against pyxf86config, that the
ATI and Nvidia graphics driver packages uses for
autoconfiguring xorg.conf. It works fairly well, and pyxf86config is
easy to use.
However, I do agree that s-c-d should be extendable by 3:rd party
