I have been wanting for a while to move the autoconfiguration matching for
video cards from a hardcoded list in the code to xorg.conf.d-style files like
we use for input devices, and wonder if we'd want to use these in Match rules
like the input devices have - though obviously we can do MatchPCIVendor "0x8086"
just as well as MatchPCIVendor "Intel", and probably more reliably since pci.ids
names can change without warning.

Of course, wanting to do it, and having a couple weeks free to actually do it
are two very different things.
