Well, how to set up the PIPEs on Intel chips still is a mystery to me
as well, so I'm avoiding it. I also don't use Xinerama, but instead
just rely on your solution a) which is the default setup anyways for
xorg AFAIK. My laptop has a special key which cyccle between
disabled/enabled builtin screen/VGA output like (builtin on, vga off),
(b off, vga on) and (b on, vga on). Normally I then get the same image
on both screens and all is well (unless a Ben-Q beamer is connected to
VGA, as these seem to dislike my laptop.)
