Since we lack our own UI for configuring monitors and video modes, it is tempting to use gnome-display-settings for the purpose.
gnome-display-settings creates a settings file in ~/.config/monitors.xml and then invokes a few D-Bus methods to notify gnome-settings-daemon that it should update the screen configuration. This is easy to see with dbus-monitor.
Perhaps we could implement the same protocol in Sugar. I don't know the details, but hopefully it's a freedesktop standard implemented by other desktops as well.
