I'm slowly becoming convinced that feeding the X server its configuration over
dbus is in fact the right design strategy.
Of course I still expect an explosion of configuration data as we find out how
to discover backlight controls and how to hook them up to the GPU driver or
the server core itself, but I suppose I'd be more concerned about that once
we had any backlight control at all. Getting it working would be a
delightful first step.
