Currently, this is probably the best way to deal with it.
If you use gnome, 2.24's display manager tool will handle it, though it
still has some issues. The intel 965 laptop that I was using needed to
disable LVDS before it could enable both external displays and that
didn't seem to work quite right. It tried to do the right thing, but I
still had to mess with the display settings a bit to use the second
external display. I didn't get around to looking at the code to fix it
