I'm curious now, because I am running latest SVN (well, as of a few
days ago).  I have heard about changes about not needing DPI, but I
wasn't sure if those are in yet.  Should I go back to DisplaySize?
xdpyinfo shows me 100dpi so I assumed I'm fine -- or am I missing out
somehow in my SVN-Myth experience? :)
