What about "special" cases, were I need xorg.conf, e.g. support for

What exacly do you mean here?
You can drive multipe (mostly 2) displays with one card - either in clone mode
or side by side (what used to be Xinerama). All this can be configured with
xrandr. Xinerama or multiple screens with different cards (aka Zaphod mode)
has been broken for ages (in fact when someone introduced libpciaccess).

It may work again with Xserver 1.7. Once this becomes a viable thing again
we need to look into how to configure this dynamically.

Stereo displays (ie special setups where you display slightly different
pictures on your left and right display to get a true 3d impression)
are not supported by any free driver. If a proprietary driver supports
this it will most likely come with its own tool to generate a config file.
