With RandR version 1.2, we have names for displays, screens, crtcs and
outputs. The geometry of each crtc within the screen is defined so you
can tell which the movie is playing on and turn the others off.

Exposing DPMS controls per crtc (or per output) is on the list for RandR
1.3; help in defining the precise controls would be appreciated.
