Less necessary, probably true. However I have an iMac that now has a
nice "burn-in" on it's flat panel of a text mode dialogue box telling me
X has restarted too many times. I didn't think it could happen on modern
monitors, in paritcularly I thought it was only really applicable to
CRTs but it appears in at least some circumstances it still can.
