OK Question will xorg's autoconfig be able to setup multiply resolution
using <ctrl><alt><+/->? SaX2 and xorg.conf could do that.

This will only work - of at all - if you add the modes you want to
a config file explicitely.
Using this mechanism your root window size (the size of your desktop)
was always kept the same. When your screen resolution was lower you
got panning. A lot of people didn't like this.
With xrandr you can use a desktop tool - or the command line program
'xrandr' (should you still be an fvwm2 user) - to change the desktop
resolution and size. If you want panning - this is supported by xrandr,
too (added by Matthias Hopf). Frederico extended the gnome desktop tool
to support panning, too AFAIK, thus you should be able to get the old
behavior back - just not using those hot keys.
However the desktop tool could implement a hot key mechanism itself,
which would allow to configure your favorite modes inside the tools
and toggle between them.
This would have to be implemented though - any volunteers? ;)
