Uhm, no, Xrandr is something else.  But the man page looks intresting,
maybe I should use that instead of VidMode.

Hmm, Debian/stable (XFree86 4.1.0) hasn't this.  Looks like this is
something new?  Anyone knows when this was added?

Exactly.  Where you can switch the resolution with Ctrl + Alt +
plus/minus.  This resolution switching can also be done using
the VidMode extention, and this is used by xawtv to go to
fullscreen at 640x480 ...

This is also used by xawtv to change the screen resolution.

Well, a single place isn't true, there is more that one window

Neverless it certainly helps to make application behaviour in
fullscreen more consistent if this is moved to the window manager.
