I've got both a 1080i set and a 1080p set. 1080i is utterly unusable as a 
display mode for the GUI, unless you like headaches. For my 1080i set, I use 
a 540p mode for the GUI and SDTV, then xrandr to 1080i for HDTV content. The 
1080p set stays at 1080p all the time (and is greatly preferred for viewing, 
despite being 10" smaller :).
