The question was how to change the availble modes, not switch between
them. When I use those keys, to switch through the modes, I hit one
where the monitor won't sync. I'd like to remove that mode from the
list. While I can edit xorg.conf, that file says not to modify it.
However, I don't see any means in Sax2 or elsewhere to select available
modes. This was available back in the XFree days.
