DisplaySize can be specified in xorg.conf* to any value that suits one's
purpose. This has the effect of enlarging and shrinking all objects according
to the deviation from actual display size.
http://fm.no-ip.com/Share/DisplaySize contains various values that result in

xorg.conf to achieve such a particular result.
