I play 1080i content in 1080i mode and 720p content in 720p mode.  Sure,
my TV is probably doing an internal conversion for one of them, but it's
less work for Myth to do the playback in the native format.  I run the
GUI in 720p.

The window manager needs to have some awareness of xrandr in order to
deal with running helper applications in full screen mode (which is
different, depending on the xrandr status).  Or at least that's how I
understand it.
