Hmm. It's a fine goal, but until computers are intelligent and 
telepathic it can't happen.

Having both a (complete!) text config file and a robust config tool is a 
very valuable feature, allowing for unforseen configurations and a 
simple fallback when the config tool fails. I feel strongly that it 
would be a Bad Thing if xorg.conf (or some kind of text config) is 

It saved my install once I got past the problems.
