Thanks for this fast and concise reply.

So just a quick follow-up question. As a total non-expert (we're talking almost Ubuntu here) should I try this?

Even if the install goes off smoothly, I'm a bit worried about config (can't see any Xorg.conf examples in the documentation).

Currently running Openchrome with no problems but a spare screen standing idle.

Thanks again for your advice and time.

It does, to some extent, but since this code does not implement
randr1.2s broken modesetting model, and further infrastructure has not
been developed inside the X framework, only a single X
screen/framebuffer gets initialised. The driver does allow for two
displays with different timing, to scan out the same part of
