That 855resolution utility only seems to work with the Intel 855 chipset.  It
lists the video modes ok on my 865G, but is not able to overwrite any of the
modes.  So any chipsets besides 855 that use the i810 driver (there are quite a
few) are still out of luck.

I agree that it would be great if this could be incorporated into the X server
and perhaps expanded to work with other chipsets?  It is not permanently
modifying anything... a reboot returns the VBIOS to normal.  It could maybe be
an advanced option or something too so people have to specifically turn it on. 
I don't see how it could completely "hose someone's machine" but then again I'm
not the expert!
