[Xorg] X server autoconfiguration

With 'X -configure', the X server is able to auto-detect which driver
to use and write a sample configuration file.

This mechanism forces to run the server twice, the first time to generate
a sample xorg.conf file which will be used untouched by the server in a
second time.

Is there a way to have the server auto-detect the appropriate graphic
driver at run time without having to use a temporary configuration file ?
