I don't see how this can be detected automatically. In my case I have two
monitors. How can it detect what the orientation is? Which screen is on the
left (or top)? I also use nvidia drivers, not nv. How would it detect what
resolution I want for the default? There would have to be some kind of
configuration file for the system to use upon startup.
