Description:
YaST urgently needs an update to its monitor configuration utility. It
has issues allowing resolutions set in X to be chosen for display, and
it would be really, really, really nice if it had multi-monitor
support.
Expecially when working with proprietary drivers, the use of sax2 to
configure multimonitor and xinerama is really difficult, this can be a
great problem for starting users.

sax2 has just been degraded last resort. There are standard desktop
utilities using xrandr these days. Proprietary drivers can not be
handled opensource.
