Yeah, I read about those.  I'm running HD though, which I understand from some of the reading there are advantages to having xrandr support.  That's why I chose wmii and pawm, because they both support xrandr.  My understanding is that ratpoison and fluxbox don't support xrandr.  Please correct me if I'm mistaken.
