Did you actually change the python app?  If so, please send me the
patch you used. I'll look into quote escapes too.

btw is someone looking at a "please insert the CD that came with your
display" application that then mounts the CD, scans it for .inf files,
imports those into the system and then unmounts the cd?
(and maybe optionally sends the imported files to bugzilla ??? ;-)

Would be nice for novice users to get their monitor to work by doing
what they expect.. eg put in the cd that came with it.

I'm working on making it unnecessary. Would be useful for people with broken hardware that can't DDC though.

At this point the only reason we should need the monitors database at all is for pretty names in s-c-d. We should be taking nearly full advantage of EDID info in the X server now. Right now it's mostly a matter of making s-c-d aware of this.
